Choose Quilting Cotton or a Heavier Fabric!

A beautiful print and scalloped edges make these simple placemats a lovely way to dress up a table.

We love the blue and white floral print chosen by the designer as it reminds us of old china. However, any print will be wonderful so go with what you like best.

The designer suggests using a lightweight twill, canvas or linen. However, quilting cotton will work nicely too.

You may want to add fusible interfacing, fusible fleece or even lightweight fusible foam to give the cotton version body. Simply fuse the stabilizer of your choice to the back of the fabric that shows on the front of the placemats.

Then we’d be tempted to topstitch around the outside edge to create a polished finish. You may even want to add some quilting. Or not. It’s entirely up to you.

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!
