    I reallly enjoyed making these. Very quick and easy. With the scraps I made napkins to match.

    Those are very pretty! But I don't understand the "four-sided" part - what does that mean?

    I think they are adorable but when I read the title I had to laugh and again they are not 6 sided!! My first thought was -so what's new most placemats have 4 sides!!-

    Do these open like a book so you have 4 different looks on each one?

    That's pretty much it. You just open to whichever look you want for the day. I made some for my DGS with childrens fabrics. It is a large oval template. You cut 4, then sew 2 of them right sides together, from the center around to the other side. Put another on 1 side (right sides together) and sew the remaining half of 1 and the first half of the other. Do this until you have all 4 sewn together, leaving a turning spot open. Turn right side out and press. I topstitched mine so they will lay flat easier after washing. I put interfacing behind 2 to add stability. Hope this didn't cloud the issue more.

    I really like this idea. Are these real thick when you get done?

    They just feel like 4 layers of stacked fabric.

    I found the instructions, etc. for the four-sided placemats.

    I was thinking about this cute idea here,
    and in the midst of some chore or other, Spang it dawned on me (I love it on those rare occasions that my little LED brain light comes on and I actually have an idea)
    that the Four Sided-Placemat does not have to be limited to placemats.
    I had this mental image of it growing.

    So I dragged (we say drug for past tense of drag but it sounds kinda hickish) the BFF down to the goodie store and told her to pick out 4 fabrics that she would actually and truly like to see on her table and that she would actually use. I suggested maybe seasonal, or vintage, or whatever she loves.
    She did, whining all the way What For???

    So I took her choices and went home and made this.

    When I brought it to her, she loves it, and it has her choices in the prints.
    Two of the prints are seasonal, and the others are just her style retro.

    Not sure these pictures show it best, but being quilters, you-all will see what it's meant to show.

    What do you think?

    .

    4 pieces, 1/3 yrd x width of fabric, trimmed and stitched.
