Quilted Placemats are wonderful! While they are an investment, not only do they look nice and can be made to match your decor, they also protect the table with the extra batting layer. They are easy care and will last many years with normal use.

These vibrant sunflower placemats also feature birds, bees and butterflies. The coordinating fabrics all work together to create striking table decor. Patchwork stars along one side add complexity and interest to the gorgeous focal picture in the center. Freemotion quilting in a floral motif adds pretty texture in keeping with the garden theme.

This is a set of six.

Each one is large sized at 16 x 12 inches ( 41 x 32 cm), fitting a full place setting. 

 

Features

I always use quality fabrics and thread. In addition, I am conscientious about making sure I use a full seam allowance. I never leave fabrics holding together by a few threads. This ensures a quality, handmade item, that will withstand normal care and use for many years.

The inner batting layer is usually Pellon or Hobbs 80/20. Occasionally I use a bamboo batting.

Binding is always double thickness and attached by machine for added durability, with neat mitered corners.

The nice thing about quilts is that the more you use them the softer and more snuggly they become. Don’t be afraid to use them wherever you want to be. After all, we wear cotton fabrics everyday in our clothes… your quilt won’t fall apart before it gets well loved!

Care

I have often washed my own quilts in with a regular wash load, with no regrets. However, it is still recommended to use a gentle cycle, mild soap and tumble drying on low heat. (** Note: I rarely prewash my fabrics. Expect a small amount of shrinkage on the first laundering.) It is the tumble drying that achieves the soft crinkly look that we associate with handmade quilts. If you prefer a flatter look, lay flat to air dry… do not dry in the dryer. 

Remember that sunlight will fade any fabric, and your quilt is no exception.  So; have a care when you leave it outside frequently or in a sunny window.

Packaging & Shipping

I package all my items responsibly, first with a care for your purchase and then with a desire to reuse and recycle any shipping material I have around.
