Perfect for Using Up Scraps!
Choose a nice combination of leftover strips of fabric from your stash for an easy set of place mats. Fat quarters and 1/4 yard cuts work too. Make all the place mats the same or vary fabric placement so each one is a bit different.
They look great in any pleasing color combination. Choose fabrics that match your decor or make a set in seasonal colors.
Quilt-as-you-go makes them so quick and easy to make. They’re almost addictive. Good thing, as a set will be a wonderful gift for someone special.
The designer, Patricia at My Patchwork Quilt, went on and made hot pads using the same technique. Just start with smaller background pieces to make your own.
Once completed, the place mats are about 17 1/2″ x 13 1/2″.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
