    is there a pattern or tutorial --placemat?

    Hi ladies!! I love your tutorials -- LOVE them - want to make everything, that's my only problem. I am wanting to make sets of placemats for Christmas presents -- do you have a tutorial on that subject? Or patterns?

    Thank you!!

    Hi Belle,

    I am a placemat junky. I LOVE placemats and have made many different types. I found a pattern last year and made a set for everyone at Christmas and they were a big hit. They are easy to make since they are a quilt as you go pattern. The pattern is in a book called G.E.Designs Fast & Furious Quilting As You Go Book. I don't see it on the MSQC website though. The author also has nice free pattern/tutorial on her blog at: http://gudrun.typepad.com/my_weblog/...rswelcome.html

    Hope that helps some.

    Happy quilting!
    Wanda

      OOPS...I probably wasn't supposed to reply in this forum...sorry about that; I'm still learning how this works.

        Thanks for the link! Cute pattern! I am a placemat junkie, too, and have made hundreds. The easiest is to make squares 3" wide, and sew them together in rows of five. Sew four of these rows together, and you have a nice sized placemat. I guess you could use charms squares, and sew until you get a rectangular size you like, or you can always add borders if one side or the other is too short. Hope this helps!

          I have used charm squares many times for placemats. Quick and easy since there is no cutting! I use 3 rows of four squares for a perfect size placemat. Love those pre-cut fabrics!!!
