Monthly Placemat Panels by Tara Reed for Riley Blake Designs

Monthly Placemat Panels coming in August 2022

Make placemats and more for every month of the year with the Monthly Placemat Panel program featuring hand painted watercolors for Riley Blake Designs. 

Growing up my mom always preferred placemats to a tablecloth because she didn’t want to hide the wood on our table. She also didn’t want it getting scratched, water marks or dented so placemats to the rescue! 

We never had them for every month of the year but had different options for the seasons and Christmas.  I wouldn’t have dreamt of one day designing a set of placemats to cover each month of the year that would protect tabletops and add to seasonal decor in homes around the globe – pretty cool!


Watch the video below to see all 72 placemat designs (6 placemats for each month of the year) and 12 coordinating prints (each in 3 colorways).

Monthly Placemats - Dec series

Just because they are designed as placemats doesn’t mean that’s all you can do with them – that’s the beauty of sewing, so many options.

I shared a few other ways to use the images in the video and will share even more as the fabric hits the market.

See what’s coming and if you sell fabric – be sure to contact your rep or Riley Blake Designs to order. If you sew and are as excited about this as we are, ask your favorite place to buy Riley Blake fabrics if they will carry this line.
