Chile Fix was inspired by big baskets of glossy red and green chiles at El Rancho de las Golondrinas, a living history museum outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. The chiles were all the same type, a New Mexico Red and a New Mexico Green, so the green and red colors were uniform. Just breathtaking!
The appliqued Chiles are prepared with paper-backed fusible web, positioned on a Foundation cloth, topped with Stem Caps, fused in place, and then applique stitched. Three layers are sandwiched, sewn around the outer edge of the applique stitch, turned right side out and quilted. Isn’t that easy?
The pattern produces two asymmetrical placemat designs: one for a square or rectangular table, (13 1/2″ x 19″) and one for a round table (13 1/2″ x 18″). By extending the rectangular placemat, a long table runner may be made.
