Do you like crazy quilt blocks? This Crazy Quilt pattern makes fast and easy quilted placemats using 6 fat quarters and makes 6 placemats at once.
I have a simple diagram template included in the pattern and you’ll be able to make these in no time at all. They make a beautiful gift. I am also finishing up a set made with Christmas fabrics that I’ll share soon.
I made this set of placemats with teal batik fat quarters that I had in my stash.
You’ll make oversized placemats and then trim them down to size after quilting. When I finished quilting all 6 of these, I forgot to trim my first placemat before binding it. This made for a big placemat! Luckily I had enough of the binding fabric and was able to just cut off the binding instead of using a seam ripper to save it. Hopefully, you won’t do what I did.
13″ x 17″ finished placemats
Several years ago I made a bunch of placemats in bright colors that you might also like.
Make a baby quilt instead
You could also easily make a baby quilt with the crazy quilt blocks! I would trim the blocks and sew them together before quilting.
I took the photo below after I had quilted and trimmed my placemats.
