    Would you please show me?

    I want to make some Christmas placemats but have no idea how I want to make them. I have googled to death and have also seen a few on this board when I'm able to find them. (The search on this board brings up way too much other stuff) I just can't seem to find anything that catches my eye. I don't really know what look I'm going for but was hoping when I see it, it will be the one. For the ones who have made them, would you mind posting a picture and letting me (and others) know where you got the pattern from? I would like mine to be roughly 14x20.

    Thanks

    When you are searching, try the advanced search. I had the same problem until I used the advanced search.

    My camera isn't working but I will describe the ones I am giving this year. First, they aren't quilted but I spent a lot of effort in picking just the correct fabric for the front and back to go with the dishes of the person I am giving them to. They are reversible, mine are a little smaller than the size you want, with a layer of flannel between the front and back fabric. The edges are finished with a rolled edge and there is a matching napkin. I am also doing some holiday placemats that are cream on the front with a large embroidered design at each end. The back fabric is a holiday red print and the rolled edge is in red. There will be two sets of napkins with these, one of red linen and one of cream. Since I didn't quilt the placemats I used spray adhesive to adher the three layers of fabric so there is no shifting. The embroidered ones have stablizing in them also. I think they look very dressy and elegant and chic.
    However you make your placemats I would advise you to give napkins with them because it is so hard to find the exact right napkin to go with a placemat. Colors are hard to match, etc.

    Those are very cute placemats. I've bought in the past printed placemats and just had to put them together. How about Joanne's fabric a Simplicity pattern when they go on sale for $.99. or maybe one of the other patterns will be on sale this weekend. Good Luck. Sue

    Quilt magazine has a really cute placemat in the new issue. It is a snowman's face in the center with sashing on the sides. I really want to do this one and it's really simple but can be out all winter not just Christmas.

    I'm doing a hexagon style placemat for my mom she has a big round table in her kitchen so I found a pattern for hexagon shaped placemats I'm just starting them so I don't have a pic yet but the pattern is Quick and Easy Table Topper & Runner by Lehmann Quilting Pattern # 103 here is a link to the page http://www.lehmannquilting.com/tablerunners.html
    This is a pattern from a class I took last week they are simple and quick to do up. I've done the center of mine in a green pattern with pine cones, flowers, and gold strands and the backing will be gold with white snow flakes. I'll try and take a pic tomorrow of the one I have done

    Love your placemats. Would you please explain how you posted these. I have been trying to post a picture and with this new format it doesn't work. Don't know where to start. Thanks.

    I made this pattern also. But I didn't do the applique. I got 4 placemats from one charm pack.

    I use a pattern by Simplicity #5964 which also has other patterns, like table topper. I make the oval place mats. I prewash material, felt batting and then use spray to tack them together and this works really good.

    Free patterns from Fabric Freedom for Christmas placemats and matching runner. The instructions are for their fabrics obviously, but you could use any combination of your own.

    Lots of Christmas mats and runner free patterns here: http://fabricfreedom.co.uk/QuiltsAndProjects.html

    Here's one:

    I make placemats using two fabrics face together with batting on one top. I stitch around the placemat leaving an opening to turn. Turn right sides out but make sure you use a tool to get the corners out properly, then hand stitch the opening closed. Top stitch about 1/2 from the edge around the placemat, I then do some kind of quilting. Works great and is simple.

    Maybe this can give you some ideas. For a placemat, you could just use the center 'wreath' part of the table runner or take the lower 3 holly leaves off of the table mat. I haven't tried to put a picture up in this new format, so hope it works.

    I've made some with stars on them which look festive. I'm new to this forum and haven't worked out how to add photos, but they are on this link: http://www.ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk/S...lace_mats.html

    Christmas placemats

    Several yrs.ago I made 30 for a family dinner....I made them round...about 14in round...but make them a size that suits your need...used up all my odds & ends of Christmas fabric....then each family took theirs home to use again.
