Five inch charm squares are perfect for this project. Select a pack you love or use up leftover squares from your stash. Extra 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips also work. Both solid colors and low-contrast prints work well for the centers.
Simple patchwork and straight line quilting make them a breeze to complete. They make wonderful gifts, too, so keep these in mind the next time you want to give something special.
The finished placemats, from S.O.T.A.K. Handmade, are 12″ x 16.5″ each.
