I love plastic canvas, but I used the patterns in my book. I love my quilt block book, but I don’t usually make quilt blocks. The solutions? Turn the quilt block patterns into plastic canvas patterns!
Step 1: Choose a quilt block pattern you love.
Step 2: Study your chosen pattern. Do you think you can do it? If not, you can try or start back at step one.
Step 3: Decide what size would work best. Would making all of those triangles five squares long be too big? If you’re not sure, try drawing it on graph paper. Hint: The squares on the paper are bigger than on the canvas.
Step 4: Draw your pattern on graph paper using slanted lines. Check online for plastic canvas patterns to see what I mean.
Now you make a square using your pattern! Here are some ideas for what to use them for:
Use as coasters
Stitch into boxes
Sew into a table runner
