They’re Perfect for Mini Charm Packs in Your Favorite Colors!
Combine a nice selection of 2 1/2″ squares into strips of patchwork for these easy place mats. Choose a complementary color for the centers, like the white shown here. It will be fun playing with color and placement to make them your own.
Mini charm packs work nicely, or cut 2 1/2″ squares from leftover charm squares, jelly roll strips and other scraps. The wide variety of fabrics, plus rick rack, give them a nostalgic feel.
The place mats are simple to construct and will go together fairly quickly. They’re turned instead of bound, making for a quicker finish.
Another example created in Photoshop.
Once completed, the place mats designed by Alicia Thommas for Sew4Home are 14″ high x 20″ wide.
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!
