I have a quick and easy quilt tutorial to share with you today for some cute and happy placemats! I think you will really enjoy this tutorial!

Summer placemats on glass table

I don’t know about you, but we always use place mats on our table all the time and these are perfect for summer out on the deck.

Change the colors and make them for Christmas, Halloween, or any other time of the year.

Summer Placemats

Each placemat is approximately 12″ x 16″

I used a fat quarter bundle of Marblehead Pleasing Pastels by Ro Gregg for Fabri-Quilt for my summer placemats and will also be sharing a matching table topper made with the same fabrics.

Happy Summer Placemat Tutorial

Here is a better look at all the beautiful fabrics, there are 17 fat quarters! I really like the marbleized look and the fabrics work perfectly as blends with other quilt fabrics.

Happy Summer Placemat Tutorial fat quarters of fabrics

I picked six different fat quarters to use to make placemats.

Happy Summer Placemat Tutorial six fabrics picked for placemats


Cut the six fat quarters into 2 1/2″ strips.

For each placemat you will need:

  • 24 – 2 1/2 inch x 2 1/2 inch squares
  • 12 – 2 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch rectangles

  • Use a 1/4 inch seam allowance
  • Mix and match the different colors of blocks
  • Sew 2 of the 2½” x 2½” squares and 1 – 2½” x 4½” rectangle together
  • Each section will measure 4½” x 4½”

Make 12 blocks for each placemat

Placemat sections of blocks

Arrange the blocks in a pleasing design.

Hopefully you won’t have two of the same color touching. After I took this photo I started piecing and realized the bottom left block needed to be turned again.

Placemat rows

Sew 4 rows of 3 blocks or…….3 rows of 4 blocks, I have no idea why I sewed them this way!

Pieced placemat

Then sew the rows together. Your place-mat will measure 12½” x 16½”.

Quilted placemat

Add your backing and batting and quilt as desired.  Make your binding with the leftover 2 1/2 inch strips using my machine binding tutorial.

They look great out on our deck and perfect with the flowers on the glass table.

They also look great in the kitchen.

We now have four beautiful happy placemats to use on our deck or in the kitchen.

The Summer placemat tutorial was originally posted in July of 2015 and has been updated.

Table Topper tutorial

I also have enough of the fat quarters leftover to make a table topper to go with the placemats. I used a different block pattern but everything coordinates perfectly. Be sure and check out that tutorial!

  1. The placemats look cutom made for the plates! or visa versa? And the quilting is so cute! Makes it look really puffy without getting too puffy that glasses fall (guess how I found that out!)

  2. Thank you for reminding us of this great tutorial. I recently unearthed a bag of leftover pastel jellyroll strips from a baby quilt I made 10 years ago and have been searching for a pattern to use them up. I think this will be perfect to use up the scraps. You have so many great patterns. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Love those soft ice cream sherbet colors, they looks so good together.

  4. We use placemats every day. I have made most of mine and change my theme each month. I may just have to make these . I usually like to have 6 as we often have 203 grandkids eat with us. They are young and sometimes messy and rarely use a napkin, but I just like the feel of a placemat under my plates and I love the cloth napkins. As always, thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Connie,
    Again you have outdone yourself. So simple yet so beautiful. Keep up the great work. Love you sense of colors.

  6. Glenda Bilinsky says:

    So simple and so beautiful! Love the idea of different fabric choices for different times of the year. I am thinking of using Canadian themed fabrics for Canada Day placemats 🇨🇦!

  7. Joan Sheppard says:

    Thanks! Wish I could make the little icon on the side give you 100 hearts for this. So cool like a big bowl of sherbert. I needed a project for doing a tutorial at our Quilt Bee – just 10 of us, about free motion quilting and this will be perfect. At home we use placemats all over the house even the bathroom.
    Everyone has their “fav” at the dinner table to put over the tablecloth (kids age 5 and 7). This will be so fun to make but especially love the color choice. Thanks for this – I love seeing the comments and wonder if things have changed for any of these people. Must feel like a big extended family for you! Thanks again.

    1. Shirley Polmateer says:

      Lovely. Looks like summer. We do use place mats and a table cloth. A great way to use up little pieces. I can see the blocks positioned in a different way. Might have to get busy. You did a great job. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Thank you for the tutorial. I also use placemats for every meal and I’m always looking for cute patterns. This is a keeper.

    Hi there Connie,
    We don't use place mats…we don't even sit at the table!!! Our kitchen table is constantly covered by whatever quilty project I am working on, so we sit in the living room! we do use table runners on the coffee table!

Thank you for the chance to win these gorgeous fabrics! Have a wonderful day.

  69. tiffany Matto says:

    I do not use placemats on my table. Frequently my table is covered in papers, art projects, whatever has been plopped there. We tend to eat at the kitchen bar. In my ideal world, my table would be all cute and "dressed" appropriately. 😉

  70. Thank you Connie for the pm tutorial and the fabrics you used sure are pretty, as I told them on their site. I don't use placemats but know people who do and I can see a set being made for them soon, thanks to you. Have a great day.

  71. I checked out Inspired by Fabric and comments over there, too.

  72. I love using placemats for special occasions, or when I just feel like dressing up the table a bit. And I always use placemats outside on the patio. My favorite are my Christmas placemats. However, I don't have summer placemats (I should really do something about that) and this bundle would work up well for that!

  73. txquilter says:

    Yes we do when we eat at the table! We usually eat in front of the TV.

  74. Marjorie Nath says:

    We use to use placemats quite often, but since we moved to Mexico, I haven't found the box that they are in (if it even made it down here) So I should really make some new ones.

  75. I left a comment on the tutorial – thanks!

  76. We use placemats all the time!!

  77. Connie Kauffman says:

    I make lots of placemats. They are quick and easy projects.

  78. I commented on the tutorail post. Thanks for the summer project and giveaway.

  79. I do use placemats. It's nice to have seasonal and holiday mats.

  80. Great tutorial. I left a comment on the Fabri-quilt blog. These could be made in seasonal colors to use throughout the year. Would make a good leaders and enders project.

  81. JudyCinNC says:

    We love using the tablemats – everywhere because I even decorate trays with them. These colors are so pleasing to the eye. Thank you for giving us a wonderful chance to win an beautiful prize. Judy C

  84. We rarely use placemats because the table is usually covered with clutter created by my husband including postage stamps he sorts for his collection. I'm proud to say that it's never cluttered with fabric.

  85. Left a comment on the tutorial – very pretty placemats!

  86. Stitchin At Home says:

    I don't usually use them. I like the looks of them, just never have them out.

  87. Yes, we use placemats – the kids like the ones that show where to place things when setting the table!

  88. vernagrace says:

    We use placemats every meal. My current ones are crocheted, and I really like this simple pattern you have provided. Thank you for the pattern and the opportunity to win this beautiful fabric!

  89. I make plenty of placemats for others but have never taken the time to make any for myself. Bugs my husband greatly!

  90. Sylvia Anderson says:

    Hi Connie…..Since there are just the 2 of us, I only use placemats when we have company, but I make them for our children and married grandchildren, who do use placemats on a daily basis. The fabrics are so pretty on their own, but would blend nicely with patterned prints as well.

  91. We use placemats all the time! I could sure use some new ones! Thanks for the chance to win!

  92. I always use placemats and cloth napkins too. Why Not? Life is for living.

    I always use placemats, they protect my table and look nice. Those pastels are really pretty!

  96. hennies.pennies says:

    We are a placement-using family. I like to change things up and make our meals together (which doesn't happen as often as I'd like) feel special. I find it somehow enhances the flavor of both the conversation and the food!! Be especially blessed…

  97. I make placemats but they never seem to reach my table someone always snags them. Thank You for the pattern I love it, maybe this one will make it to my table.Lol

  98. I use to use them all the time, but then the furkids thought they were nice kitty beds – did not like that idea – so only pull them out on occassion.

  99. Yes, we always use placemats on our table. I've made some seasonal ones that we use most often. Thanks for the chance to win!

  100. Such fun summer colors! I love to use placemats – seems to add so much to a table.

  101. Great tablemats. I use placemats and coasters on my inside and outside tables. I've got them co ordinated with the decor for inside and the seasons for outside. They just get thrown in the washing machine once a week and put on the line to freshen them up

  102. GranChris says:

    I love placemats. They look nice on the table and I just toss them in the wash. I do spray them with Scotchguard to prevent stains.

  116. Kathy Erickson says:

    I visited Fabric-Quilt and left a comment! I love these!

  117. Kathy Erickson says:

    We do use placemats at our place, but only when we have company or are eating outside on the deck. Otherwise, we eat at the island and dine simply. We should be using them, though, all the time!

  118. We always use placemats but unfortunately not pretty hand made ones !

  123. I commented on Inspired by Fabric. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  124. I don't use placemats but my mom does! I usually use mug rugs because we eat in front of the TV and mug rugs are just the right size. Bad habit eating in front of the TV, I know!

  133. Love your placemats and the beautiful fabrics! Yes I do use them on my table. Thanks so much.

  134. Yep, we use placemats on the table, I don't like table cloths covering up my nice wood table!

  135. Very pretty placemats Connie. I really like the quilting you've done to them and think I might even be able to handle that. I sure wouldn't guarantee straight lines like yours though. haha

    I always used to have placemats on my table until I moved to this house years ago. The kitchen is SO tiny; well, not really tiny, but the layout is very bad so the only table we can have in there is only about 4 feet long. The placemats are practically stacked over each other on that tiny table so a runner is about the best I can do. When the holidays come and we have the kids coming over though, we set up a banquet sized table in the living room, and yea that takes up my entire living room sadly, but for the holidays I either use a tablecloth, or placemats. The placemats I had though were very old so I got rid of them. I need to make more of them. Gee, maybe since our dining table is in the living room with the Christmas tree, maybe I should make the placemats match a Christmas tree skirt which I very much need as well. LOL

  136. teachpany says:

    Great colors, and a cute way to make a scrappy placemat. Thanks for sharing the idea. I do use placemats, but haven't made any for summer. I need to!

  137. We use placemats, but I need more so I can change them out once in awhile.

  138. Valerie Reynolds says:

    Okay…now that I saw that pattern it's on my to do list to make some placemats! Like that the pattern is fat quarter friendly! Thanks for the inpsiration Connie.

  139. Valerie Reynolds says:

    We use placemats in our formal dining…which means we have company. Hmmm…maybe I should make some for hubby and I to use daily???

  140. We use fabric placemats every day but they need washing so often we'd be better with wipe clean ones! x

  141. Thanks for the give away, Connie. I use placemats all the time. Yours are so pretty.

  142. Lisa Marie says:

    We do not normally use placemats, but I often make them to give as gifts because many of my family members use them. I'm thinking maybe we should start using them just because they are super cute.

  143. Deal.licious Real Food Debby says:

    Placemats are a biggie over here with 3 little ones and my hubby always making a mess. 🙂 Your placemats look lovely. Those colors would make a lovely table runner too.

    When the kids were little we used plastic placemats because they were easier to clean! But I no longer own any!

  187. We use placemats all the time. They make the tuna salad or wienies and beans look much fancier! And I'm happy to see that my son's family uses them with their 4 and 6-year old girls.

  188. We go in spurts–depending on mood, or the state of our laundry basket, I suspect. Yours are awfully cute and might inspire me to keep on top of things. 🙂
