Quick Quilted Placemats
A quick project that makes any meal fun

Placemats only require a little fabric and are quick to sew. Since the finished size of a placemat is 13" x 19", fat quarters (18" x 21") are great starter fabrics.

Watch the video and learn how to make “quilted fabric” with Nancy's “stitch and turn” technique.

Halloween Quilted Placemat

Nancy Zieman demonstrates the Stitch 'n Turn quilting technique while making quick quilted placemats:
  • Cut 2 fabric layers and 1 batting layer 20" x 14".
  • Use chalk to mark bias lines on placemat.
  • Pin layers together.
  • Stitch along one marked bias line. Turn the placemat 1/4 turn, stitch along next marked bias line. Repeat until all marked lines are sewn.
  • Trim placemat to desired size.
  • Use your favorite binding technique to apply binding around edges.
Watch the above video for a demonstration and more details.
