This pattern was designed for a Kitchenaid electric mixer. Measurements can be adjusted to fit
your mixer, blender or toaster.
Pieced Appliance Cover
Using the speed cut and sew method illustrated in these instructions
you can make this cover more quickly than you might think. The side panels have a decorative center diamond square. You can leave this off for an even easier-to-make version, or use your favorite block design. The front features a second fabric
print framed in off-center strips. The cover has an inner layer of felt and is fully lined.
NOTE: Our Easy Version Mixer Cover omits the piecing on the front and the quilt block on the side. If double sided, pre-quilted fabric is used,
batting and lining can be omitted.
Fabric: Assumes fabric is
at least 40" wide.
Outer Fabric: 1 yard
Lining: 1 yard
Contrast (gold solid for accent stripes): 1/2 yard
Binding for lower edge
Fabric pieces for side quilt block (block of your choice)
Crafter's Felt or Fusible Fleece or batting: 1 yard of 45" wide felt
The felt comes on a large bolt and can be found at Joann's. This can be used in place of batting.
It is very inexpensive, washable and creates a nice amount of stiffness. If you are going to add much
quilting to your piece, batting would work better.
TIP: If you wish to use pre-quilted fabric, but can't find just what you need,
you can create it yourself. Learn how with our Prequilted Fabric Instructions.
Use our Fusible Fleece for the middle layer. Just fuse the fleece (works like felt) to your upper fabric. No slipping!
Lining: 1 yard of your choice of fabric for the lining.
There are no pattern pieces to print for this project. Instructions are given for cutting your
pieces for the front, top, and side panels pieces (including the center diamond).
You might need to modify the measurements of the sides, top and front to fit the dimensions of your mixer.
Use 1/4" seams
1. Create your pattern pieces for the front/back and sides.

IMPORTANT PRINTING NOTE: Be sure you print at 100% size (no scaling) or your pattern will not be the correct size. The bottom of the finished pattern piece should measure 13" across and the piece should measure 15" high (center).
Cut one long piece measuring 38" x 16.5".
Side Quilt Block: If you want to add a side quilt block, make the quilt block at this time. Mark the side-top-side piece 16" from each end. This designates the area of the two sides and helps with block placement. A block can be any size from 4" sqare to 8" square.
