Summer Patchwork Quilted Placemats

Learn how to make a set of cheerful patchwork quilted placemats with today’s project from the Tantalizing Tabletoppers book by Pat Sloan. These quilted placemats add a pop of color and pattern to any tablescape. Depending on your fabric choice, they can be easily customized and are quick to create.

Today I’m excited to be sharing a project with you from Pat Sloan’s new book, Tantalizing Tabletoppers. If you’ve been a long-time reader, you know that I’ve worked with Pat a few times (I created a fun Halloween table topper from her last book).

With the warmer weather finally making an appearance in Kentucky, I’ve been very motivated to finish my Picnic Basket linens.

My husband gifted me a basket for Christmas this year, and I’ve slowly been adding handmade items to the basket. We plan to put it on the back of my bike and take it with us on our summer adventures (well, that’s the plan; we will see how it goes *wink*).

A few weeks ago, I created a set of napkins from fat quarters of fabric, and this week I added two quilted placemats to the collection. All of the sewn items are made with my Summer Picnic fabric collection.

About the Book

You can find the pattern for the placemats that I created in the book. The book features 12 different patterns, each one of them for a type of table topper, table runner, or placemat.

There are so many cute projects in the book, here are just a few of the ones that caught my eye!

I’m eager to try the braided table runner at the top of the photo. The technique looks really interesting to me.

If you’re not familiar with Pat, she writes detailed, easy-to-follow patterns. All of the patterns in the book include full-color illustrations.

Where to Buy the Book

You can find the book at many local quilt shops, Fat Quarter Shop, and Amazon.

    Thank you!
