Placemats and Napkins


4 PLACEMATS   –  Finished placemats are 19 x 13.

¾ yd.  each of 2 fabrics
5/8 yd. contrasting fabric to make 260” of bias binding �
Quilter’s Dream Poly Select Loft

I layered my fabrics wrong sides together with the batting in between and quilted the one large piece then cut it into 4 – 19 x 13 pieces and bound them.  You could also cut them out first and quilt them individually, whatever is easiest for you.  (Spray basting is perfect for this.) 

Finished placemats are 19 x 13.


1 1/8 yd. fabric for hemmed edges OR
1 yd. for serged edges.

Napkins finish at approximately 18” square.  Cut them 20” and turn under 3/8” twice and hem or cut 18” and serge the edges.
Optional Tools:  Katie’s Korners Radial Rule to round the corners on both the placemats and napkins.
Clover #25 Bias Tape Maker for 7/16” binding (that’s wider than 3/8 but not as wide as ½”.)  Binding strips are cut 1 ¾” wide.

NOTE:  I used the Radial Rule to round the corners on the placemats making the single fold bias binding easy to apply.  I also rounded the napkins which made serging the edges easier.
