Folded Star Mat-Tutorial Uploaded

Folded Star Mat (10 inches square finished)
Folded Star Mat 2

I remember making folded star ornaments and round folded star pot holders when I first started quilting about 25 years ago. I thought I would try and do a square mat to use on the table at Christmas time. These come together quickly once you organise the colours you are going to use etc. This 10 inch square mat can be used as a placemat, trivet, pot holder or as the centre for a pillow. Combine three of them and you would have a tablerunner. The possibilities are endless. I have modified the technique used so that there is no hand sewing of the points as you construct  this folded star  .The tutorial can be found here
