I finished the placemats for my kiddos this week! Don't they all look so sweet together?
I put together a simple little tutorial on how to make these. You can find it HERE. They aren't hard to figure out, but if you are like me and sometimes don't want to do the math and figure out the right proportions please give it a try!
For Josiah's I used a fun little scrap pack that I found at my local quilt store. Don't you just love those little characters? Josiah isn't quite old enough to use this yet, but I thought I should just make his while I was on a roll or it would never get done!
Here is the back! I used a green and brown stripe. I really think these placemats are easily reversible!
For the quilting on this one I just did a simple crosshatch pattern. I think I like this style of quilting best out of the three placemats I made.
This is Juliana's placemat. I love the fun, bright pinks in this one. This one is made exclusively of out my various Heather Ross fabric pieces I have been saving and saving.
I stippled this one in a variegated purple thread. The quilting on this one really does pop out more on this one than the others, but I think I still like it. ;0)
I used this sweet little pink flower print for the back of hers.
You can also check out Felicity's placemat here.
I have lots of these fabrics still leftover! If any of you are interested, I will cut out enough squares for you to make your own patchwork placemat. You can choose which set you would like: the boy, the pink/ purple, or the peach colorway. Just leave me a comment and let me know which one you would like! I will pick the winner, Sunday April 10th! Thanks for reading and happy sewing!
