About this Quilt

Finished Size : 24" × 68"

Finished Blocks : 6" × 9"

Designed By : Vivika Hansen DeNegre

Simplicity and functionality combine to make this On the Beach Yoga Mat a must-have for those who enjoy a sun salutation by the shore, in a park, or at any other scenic outdoor venue. Fabric yoga mats are soft on the feet, easy to carry, and can be washed time and again, which makes them an ideal project for yoga practitioners who like to quilt.

This On the Beach Yoga Mat is constructed with 28 blocks that are sewn together with an alternating top to bottom placement to create spontaneity and movement. The coordinating binding, made with scraps of fabric left over from the colorful fat quarters and gray print fabrics, adds interest to the design and gives the On the Beach Yoga Mat a playful yet professional-looking finish.

The project includes detailed directions for creating your own French-fold Binding and tips on how to sew the pieces together with ease. Make an On the Beach Yoga Mat for yourself or as a gift for your favorite yogi. You’ll both be grateful you did.
