These cheerful summertime placemats use traditional piecing and are perfect for a beginner...and the entire project was cut on my GO! Fabric Cutter (project is GO! Big, GO!, and GO! Baby compatible) using the GO! Qube Mix & Match 6" Block and the 2" Strip Cutter:
- GO! Qube Mix & Match 6” Block (55775)(Dies used: #1 – 3” Finished Square, #3 – 3” Half Square Triangle, #4 – 3″ Quarter Square Triangle)
- GO! Strip Cutter-2″ (1 1/2″ Finished) (55025 or 55164) (borders and binding)
This project is great for scraps or fat quarters...and while I used summery fabrics, these placemates would look great in a variety of colors/prints or holiday fabrics. Each placemat finishes 18"W x 12"H - and the instructions are written for a four placemat set. Another interesting fact about this project: although the center of each placemat is a 9” quilt block, I used the 6” GO! Qube to create it - just another versatile way to use the GO! Qube.
To complete the look, you can easily make coordinating cloth napkins, as you can see in my table top photo...
