The Centerpiece Interfacing Template is used in two patterns from PlumEasy Patterns. They are both listed for sale on our ETSY store.
The patterns, Kaleidoscope Centerpiece and Point of View Folded Star Wreath, both use one template.
This package has three additional templates but does not contain instructions. You need one of the patterns to get full information.
Centerpiece is a printed interfacing with a 17-inch grid to help make a jumbo folded star hot pad or wall hanging. It is measured by increments of 3/4-inch starting in the center and moving toward the outside. The circle is divided by angles of 90, 45, 22.5 degrees to allow positioning of fabric consistent and accurately. If you lay the bottom of a prairie point on a layer line (there are 9 layers), centered on an angle line, it will point to the middle and if you repeat this around the whole line at each angle (90, 45, or 22.5 degrees), you will create a whole layer of prairie points. When you start in the middle there are only 8 prairie points but as your star grows you have to go to 16 by layer 5. If you've made a folded star hot pad, it is a very similar technique. The pictures show partially made projects so you can see the template and prairie points in progress and hopefully get the gist.
If you are the type person who doesn't need a pattern and can figure out things from pictures, the main question I am given is what size are the prairie points. They are 2.5 inches when folded, but we make it a minimal fold to reduce the bulkiness of all the layers. The pattern has full info. This project is really fun and exciting to make, to watch your project come together with each layer, it will delight you and you'll start thinking of lots of ways to make your next one.
