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. This week’s remix is the Pocketed Placemats Jera Brandvig of Quilting in the Rain designed for us when she came to visit us last year to showcase her new collection, La Conner! (Love her look? Check out her upcoming line, Woodland Rose!) These placemats are an adorable and easy to personalize for the upcoming holidays!
Here is what you’ll need to make this project:
- Star Block from Quilt as You Go Made Vintage (Block #45)
- 13″ Strip of Lace
- Two 12 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ rectangles (these are for the sides)
- One 10 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ rectangles (this is for the pocket)
- One 20 1/2″ by 12 1/2″ rectangles (this is for the back of the placemat)
- Soft and Stable Batting
- Rotary Cutter or a good pair of Scissors
Jera did a video tutorial on the Pocketed Placemats with Kimberly when she came to visit us last year! Grab your materials and follow along with us as we make this fun and handy project:
We even had some awesome quilty friends make their version of the Pocketed Placemats:
Quilty Staffer Nancy made her Pocketed Placemat using Sing Your Song by Anne Rowan for Wilmington Prints. She used the Sing Your Song fabric collection because it contains some large flowers which she cut around to make a coaster that coordinates with the pocketed placemat.
Quilty Staffer Susan made her Pocketed Placemat using Well Said by Sandy Gervais for Moda Fabrics. She used a 12.5″ block (unfinished) from the Farm Girl Vintage Book for the center and also made a pocket on each side of the placemat!
Carole of From My Carolina Home made her Pocketed Placemat using scraps from Moda Fabrics and other collections. She changed the center star to a maple leaf for an Autumn Accent, using a coordinating plaid for the pocket. These will be auctioned off at a charity auction in November just in time for Thanksgiving!
