BLOG REMIX – Charm Pack Placement

We’re shaking things up on the Jolly Jabber! We are bringing life back to our old projects with Blog Remixes! Every other Thursday from today until November 15, we will be throwing it back to one of our tutorials with new fabrics, notions, tips and tricks to inspire you to make your next project. Whether you’ve seen this project before or it’s your first time, there’s a remix project for everyone. For the first remix, we are bringing back the Charm Pack Placemats tutorial we did with Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life in 2016!

Fabric Requirements

Here is what you’ll need to make this project:

Video Tutorial

Sherri even did a video tutorial on the Charm Pack Placemats with Kimberly when she came to visit us in 2016! Grab your materials and follow along with us as we make this beginner-friendly project:

Quilt Along

We even had some awesome quilty friends make their version of the Charm Pack Placemats:

Quilty staffer Codi made hers using Homegrown by by Deb Strain for Moda Fabric. On the back of each of her placemats, Codi used a fussy cut from the Homegrown Night Sky Black Quilt Panel for a charming touch to her project!

Karin of Blue Pipe Designs (@kpud) made her placemats using Foundation by Sassafras Lane Designs for Windham Fabrics and actually put a layer of Insul-Bright in her placemat. This allows the placemat to double as a large pot holder for hot objects!

Linden of Vine Lines (@vinelines) used Whispers Muslin for Studio M to make her project. She adjusted the pattern to cut the small squares first and then joined them to make the cutting neater. She also used OdiCoat – a water resistant gel – to paint on her mats so that they are good for table use with her two small children.

Quilty staffer Elva made her placemats using Peacock Holiday Flourish by Peggy Toole for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Elva made her placemats for her friend’s housewarming!

Quilty staffer Codi also made a set of placemats using The Good Life by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics.

Quilty staffer Nancy made her placemats using Return to Winter’s Lane by Kate & Birdie for Moda Fabrics. Nancy chose the fabrics in her placemats because of their holiday theme!

Susan from FQS made her placemats using White Christmas Metallic by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics.

Sondra from Out of the Blue Quilts (@sondradavison) made her placemat using Sundrops by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. In lieu of using a charm pack, Sondra made her placemat using the Sundrops Layer Cake!

  1. You need to update your fabric requirements.

    The placement appears to have a 2.5 x 12.5 border on each side (I didn’t see any seams on this so assuming this is one piece. Plus you need to include the fabric for the binding.

  2. I cannot find the written directions; only see a video tutorial. I see the list of materials and how to cut, but no directions as to how to put it together. I know I’ll be embarrassed when someone tells me how easy it is to find them!
