"Piecing is my favorite quilting technique and my Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 has a very precise 1/4" seam allowance. When I sew with my MC15000, my seams are accurate and my blocks are truly precision pieced. The accuracy is so amazing; I don't even need to use pins to hold my fabric pieces in place when I stitch. If you're ready to learn an easy construction method for a traditional-style block with a modern twist, let me introduce you to one of my favorite quilt blocks and my all-time favorite Janome presser foot. I love it so much, I've told my friends at Janome that they should call this presser foot, Kimberly's Favorite Foot!" - Kimberly Einmo

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
