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!
Here is what you’ll need to make this project:
- 1 Charm Pack (will make 4 placemats)
- Choose one stabilizer:
- 1/4 yard contrast fabric
- 1/2 yard binding
- 3/4 yard backing
- 4 1/2″ Square Creative Grids Ruler
- Olfa Rotary Cutter
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:
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.
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!
