The large, flat front of the placemat is like a canvas for your creativity. These beauties combine patchwork, decorative quilting, and bold appliqué with crisp, clean lines of precision stitching and a striking color palette.
Home décor fabric is a great choice for table linens. Motifs tend to be bigger and tones more dramatic, plus it’s thicker and more durable – good qualities for this table runner. To soften, we added deep ruffles in a handkerchief linen.
Plates are traditionally round, but placemats are usually rectangles. Hmmmm. Square peg/round hole? How about a round mat? Ours are a generous 16″ in diameter, and they’re reversible: patchwork on the front, solid on the back.

Pretty placemats that are sweet enough to eat. The design is perfect for leftover jelly roll strips or cut your own strips from scraps. Decorative stitching ties the rows together and holds all the layers in place.
New napkins are a fast, easy way to add a bit of sparkle to the table. We used a mid-weight metallic linen blend with a wide band of decorative stitching along one side. We also give you a list of the various napkin size options.
Can’t get enough of the itty-bitty adorableness of Mini Charm Squares. At just 2½”, they are bite-size pieces that can be sewn together into colorful combinations. We used them to create double borders on a set of placemats.
