🍓 Easy Sewing Project for Summer: How to Quickly Quilt Placemats with a Fabric Panel
Summer is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor gatherings with family and friends. And what better way to brighten up your dining table than with handmade placemats?
In this blog post, you will learn a quick and easy way to quilt placemats for summer using a fabric panel by Tara Reed for Riley Blake Designs.
You can sew a set of 6 placemats in just a few hours!
The June placemat panel features baskets of berries and the words “Life is Sweet” – “Family Gathers here” and “Enjoy the Moment” all hand painted in watercolors.
Whether you’re relaxing on your deck or simply looking to refresh your table decor, these placemats are the perfect addition to your home.
The 6 placemat designs for June are the latest installment of the Monthly Placemat Program I created for Riley Blake Designs.
You can quilt the fabrics and use traditional binding to finish the placemats or layer the fabrics right side together on top of batting, sew, turn and press for a quicker project.
Watch the video to see how easy it is to quilt placemats by drawing lines with a pen that will disappear when you iron it.
