Appliqué Instructions:

1. Open the desired appliqué pattern document on your computer (above). Remove all paper from your inkjet printer. Place one sheet of June Tailor® Inkjet Printable Fusible Web into your printer so that printing occurs on the paper, not the fusible web side of the sheet. Print normal quality, plain paper setting. Allow 5 seconds for ink to dry. Trim pattern pieces from the fusible web sheet.

2. Preheat iron to medium/high (wool) setting, no steam. Select fabrics for the various appliqué pieces and press to remove wrinkles. Place fusible web pattern pieces right side up on wrong side of fabric. Glide iron over pattern for two to four seconds and allow to cool. Cut fabric in pattern shape. Remove paper backing.

Placemat Instructions: (per placemat)

3. Cut light color fabric 14-1/2” x 8-1/2” for center of placemat. Cut a total of 54 strips measuring 1-1/2” x 3” from the 2 alternate light fabrics and 7 assorted fabrics for the placemat border.


4. Stitching long sides of 1-1/2” x 3” strips together, create two border strips measuring 3” x 8-1/2” and two border strips 3” x 19-1/2”. Press seams for each border piece in one direction. Stitch the two 8-1/2” border pieces to sides of placemat center. Press seams towards border. Stitch 19-1/2” border pieces to top and bottom of placemat center. Press seams towards border.


5. Arrange appliqué pieces right side up on placemat center as desired. Place iron (set at medium/high, no steam) on appliqué for 1 to 2 seconds to set in place then gently glide over appliqué for 8 to 10 seconds being careful not to move your pieces. Add ironing time for sections that are more than two layers thick.


6. Layer completed placemat top, batting and backing fabric and baste. Quilt, embroidery stitch and embellish as desired, then bind.
