    This pattern makes up amazingly quickly!
    Try it, and post some pictures.

    that the Four Sided-Placemat does not have to be limited to placemats.
    I had this mental image of it growing.

    So I dragged (we say drug for past tense of drag but it sounds kinda hickish) the BFF down to the goodie store and told her to pick out 4 fabrics that she would actually and truly like to see on her table and that she would actually use. I suggested maybe seasonal, or vintage, or whatever she loves.
    She did, whining all the way What For???

    So I took her choices and went home and made this.

    When I brought it to her, she loves it, and it has her choices in the prints.
    Two of the prints are seasonal, and the others are just her style retro.

    Not sure these pictures show it best, but being quilters, you-all will see what it's meant to show.

    What do you think?

    .
    Excellent idea!

    That original site referred to is no longer available. The directions were part of a Guild newsletter and they only go back as far as September now. The older newsletters seem to have been deleted. Darn.

    I have been searching for the pattern myself. Could someone with the instructions (including the measurements for the oval and fabric requirements) please post. As mentioned above, the guild newletter no longer posts that pattern. Thanks.............

    Ok if I understand this right..

    You get an oval, of some unmentioned size... of 4 fabrics.. you lay one down, right side up.. you lay another right side down on top of the first. You sew around one half of that oval. Then you take the unsewn half and fold it back over the sewn half. Then you take another oval fabric and put it on top with right side down, and sew around the OTHER side that you didn't sew previously. Then fold the unsewn side back, then you take the 4th final fabric and lay that right side down, and go all the way around the edge but leaving a gap to turn inside out. Sound about right?
