    *SPECIAL NOTE #1: In order to make the instructions

    easier to read, I made the candy canes a solid red color

    for the instructions only. As you can see from the photo,

    I made the candy canes from red and white bias striped

    fabric!

    *SPECIAL NOTE #2: Be sure to cut your stipes in

    the right direction. Double check the direction of

    the stripes with the final pattern layout before

    you cut your fabric!

    Gray Barn Design Notes

     All seams are 1/4 inch , unless otherwise noted in instructions

     Assume width of fabric = 42 inches

     Press seams as indicated

     Sew seams with right sides together

    Quilting Math

    1/4 inch = .25 inch

    1/2 inch = .5 inch

    3/4 inch = .75 inch

    “ is the symbol for inch

    **Tip**

    Note the direction of the

    stripes in your placemat

    before cutting your fabric.

    I wanted all my stripes to

    go from left to right...so I

    measured twice (maybe

    three times) and cut once!
