    you can do an elongated log cabin (rectangular). I've also done pinwheels, or fussy cut a stripe from a focus fabric, and added borders.

    I purchased some snowmen placemat panels from JoAnn's. There are 6 to a panel and they were $5 for the panel on sale at 50% off. I purchased several panels and also some dark blue indigo Kona cotton for the backing. They were really easy to do and turned out very cute! Plan to give as Christmas gifts to my secret sister at church and to my neighbors.

    You can take a dozen 3.5" squares, sew them together in three rows of four each, and then frame the resulting rectangle with 2.5" strips. Back them any way you like.

    This will give you a placemat that's 14" x 16" (assuming 1/4" seams).

    You can do the squares all scrappy, or use a planned color combination.

    Try free patters.com. I just made Spring Flower Runner and it was very simple. It could be made into a placemat. Doesn't take alot of fabric.
