Homestead Life Fabric Placemat panel

Homestead Life Placemat Panel

Want to make fun, farm-themed placemats without a lot of fabric piecing or fuss?

Homestead Life Fabric placemat panel to the rescue!

With six designs all laid out for you in an 11″ h x 18″ wide format you simply add the batting, backing and binding and you are ready to use in your home, as a gift and more.

Using the pre-designed placemats from the panel is a great time to play with decorative stitching or free motion quilting if your machine has those options.

I had fun adding free-motion stitching over the wheat in the “Bless this Homestead” design and used a decorative stitch straight down each side to add some interest and secure the layers and the same time.

Stitching along the wood panel lines is a quick and easy way to tack things together as well – you can decide if you want to go straight through the text and images or leave those areas unstitched.

If you need more than 6 placemats or just want to add more variety to the mix, create more 11″ h x 18″ w layouts with the Homestead Life fabric.

I created some accent panels with the help of squares and some strips from the Homestead Life Rolie Polie. (The Rolie Polie’s from Riley Blake Designs are huge time savers!  They come with 40 pieces already cut into 2.5″ strips – there as so many ways to use them!)
