sewing: circular quilted placemats tutorial - imagine gnats

I’m so happy to be here sharing a fun project to spruce up your dining table and have you dreaming of warm weather eating. Think meals hot off the grill, cool crisp salads, or a bowl of ice cream. I love the look of circular placemats and how they accent a basic table setting without overwhelming the table. These feature a simple and bright patchwork design with quilting.

This is a great project to play with scraps or go for something new and fresh with a small bundle of your favorite new fabric collection. Notes: ModernGeometrics.

Cut out 26 pieces of fabric pieces, each measuring1.5" x 3.5". Lay out the pieces of fabric to come upwith 2 sets of panels made with 13 pieces. Sew them together. Fun! Press seams open. Now it's nicely flat! Cut out 13.5" x 13.5" square from white Kona. Sew the patchwork panels to the sides.

Press seam open again. Cut out a piece of cotton batting a bit largerthan the top panel, then cut out a piecefrom the same Kona white even larger thanthe cotton batting. Use quilter's basting spray to makethe sandwich nicely attached to each other. Now using a water-soluble pen,draw one line like this in thecenter of the placemat. Just one line should be good enough ;) Quilting time ;)I like to start from here to secure the edges. Then I sew very close to the edgeon the side. A Christmas Tutorial - Checkered Chargers. Christmas dinner always takes center stage, but my favorite Christmas meal is breakfast.

A Christmas Tutorial - Checkered Chargers

After opening gifts, wouldn't it be nice to sit down to breakfast with your family at a table decorated with these pretty chargers?

A Quilting Life - a quilt blog: Jelly Roll Placemats

But first I'd like to share my quick and easy Jelly Roll placemats. My inspiration for these placemats came from Camille's Moda Bake Shop table runner...Camille used a charm pack for her runner, and I thought a Jelly Roll would be great for placemats. I had fun making these out of the "Oh Cherry Oh" Jelly Roll I won in the Moda FabricMatcher contest for the month of December. For 4 placemats you will need a minimum of thirteen jelly roll strips (if you'd like to make your placemats even cuter and scrappier...cut 18 jelly roll strips in half and use 9 of those half strips along with 4 full-sized strips). You will also need 1/2 yard for binding the four placemats and 1/2 yard to back them (or use one fat quarter to back each placemat).

Now cut all of your two strip units into 5" long segments. DIY: Simple Heart Quilt Blocks - Spoonflower Blog – DIY Fabric, Wallpaper, Decals and Gift Wrap. Nothing says "I love you" like something handmade.
