They’re a Great Use of Scraps!
Use up some of those leftovers in a set of super simple patchwork placemats. These charmers go together quickly and will be brightening your table before you know it.
The placemats were designed for a child’s table but they’re also perfect for the kitchen or dining table. Plus, they are an easy project, even for beginning quilters. You’ll love how quickly you can have a set finished up.
Pieces cut from 5″ charm squares and 2 1/2″ jelly rolls are perfect for this project. Put together a nice combination from your stash or start fresh with a new pack of pre-cuts from a favorite fabric line.
Jumbo rick rack is a fun finishing touch. A piece of sturdy lace or other trim will also be nice. Or, leave the placemats plain and let the patchwork dominate.
The placemats, designed by Vanessa Goertzen at Lella Boutique, are around 12″ x 16″ once completed.
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!
