|*1 yard of Summer Night Lights in pink (Front of center panel)|
*1 yd of Summer Night Lights in blue (back of center panel)
*1 yd. of fabric for inside lining (back of barn doors. I used Wander Woods in pink)
*Linen piece: 20 1/2"x 35"
*1/3 yd roof fabric (i used green feather print): Cut to 12 1/2"x 35"
*1/3 yd fabric for pockets
*2 yds fusible batting (goes on barn doors and pink center panel)
*4 yds fusible ultra firm stabilizer (fuses to each inside lining and blue center panel). I had hoped this would allow the play mat to stand upright. It didn't work though so a medium weight interfacing would probably be adequate.
*fabric scraps and wool felt for applique
*1 package single fold extra wide white bias tape for barn doors
*2 packages double fold brown bias tape for fence on the pockets (optional)
*26" lace or ribbon for the closure
*3 strips 5"x width of fabric (WOF) of linen to make binding for roof, edges where barn doors meet, and the bottom of mat. Due to the angle changes of the roof I highly recommend that you join the binding strips on the bias
*2 strips 7"x WOF linen to make extra wide binding (for edges that join the center and barn doors)
*sewing machine, pins, thread, rotary cutter and cutting mat, scissors, iron
*Please read all instructions before starting
This tutorial is intermediate and requires knowledge of applique and how to do quilt binding. I have tried to simplify so the tutorial is not too long so feel free to email me if you need any help.
