Earlier this month I had the opportunity to participate in making some things for the newest Mediterraneo
fabric line by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics. Today, I have a tutorial for some placemats. Forgive me for the photo quality. I was trying to get everything sent off quickly.
I love how the colors and how they turned out!
For each placemat, you will need:
- (25) assorted 4 inch squares
- (1) 15.5 inch x 20.5 inch batting
- (1) 16 inch x 21 inch backing fabric
- 1/8 yard binding fabric
Arrange squares in desired layout, cutting 7 of the squares in half as shown below. Begin stitching into diagonal rows.
Sew the rows together. Press seams and then trim to measure 15 inches by 20 inches.
Make your quilt sandwich by placing your backing fabric right side down. Place batting on top of that and then finally the front fabric face up. Baste and then quilt as desired. Trim to 9″ square and bind to finish off.
These are quick to make. I really enjoyed making them and hope you do, too! If you do, I’d love to see them. Tag me at #fourrobbinsdesigns on social media.
You’ll also want to check out the Mediterraneo Lookbook at Art Gallery Fabrics at the end of this week to see so many more beautiful projects!
