It’s a really simple project that makes use of charm squares and jelly roll strips, but it can be made with any fabrics you have handy.
I had so much fun coming up with this pattern and I’m super chuffed that it has actually been published.
The pattern is really versatile and if you think about the placemat as a “block” you can turn it into a table runner like Angela from The Green Apricot has done, or even a quilt.
The big squares are great for fussy cutting as Sylvia from @creative_chicky has done.
I was so lucky to have Gemma from Pretty Bobbins do an allover quilting pattern on my placemats. I really love the pattern that she chose (love a good hexagon) and it really compliments the placemat piecing.
There’s heaps of other great projects in this months issue (I’m quite enamored with the hexagon clock) so be sure to check it out if you’re looking for a new sewing project.
If you make these I’d love to see your version. You can upload photos of your projects to my Charmed Jelly Placemat Flickr Group by clicking here.
If you have any questions about the pattern or need assistance just drop me an email or comment on this post and I’ll be more than happy to help you out.
If you’d like to have your quilting work quilted by the lovely and fabulous Gemma from Pretty Bobbins you can find her contact details on her website. Don’t worry if you don’t live in Canberra, Gemma accepts quilting projects through the mail. So there’s no excuse. *wink*
