Hi I am Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl. I am happy to be sharing my placemat tutorial.
I made these using Pat Sloan’s fabric Bobbins & Bits – which is the cutest line of fabric! These placemats will be in the Therm O Web booth at Quilt Market this week! So exciting!!
Here is how you can make your own: (the instructions are for 1 placemat)
For the hourglass blocks:
Place the white square (line facing you) on top of the colored square (right sides together). You may want to pin if you feel like the fabric is shifting.
To finish the placemat, pin the hourglass blocks together and sew so you have 2 rows of 5. Press seams. For the accent strip, cut a 2″x13″ piece. I love the fabric I used – it looks like selvage but has cute sayings about sewing and quilting. For the main fabric, cut it 13″ x however long you want your placemat. There is no right or wrong.
To finish the placemat….
Easy & fast Version – iron on Therm O Web Fusible Fleece or other Therm O Web Fusible stabilizer, sew right sides together, turn, press, and top stitch (pictured below)
For quilted version,
I used Therm O Web Fusible Fleece. I ironed it to the pieced placemat.
Then I used the Spray n Bond Basting Spray to adhere my back to the fleece. Next, I quilted 1″ seams along the placemat. Bind.
This is how it turned out! So cute!
