 Rooster Rustic Quilted Place Mats
These country-style place mats are very easy to make, even if you're only a novice quilter, and look very charming. Great for the spring and summer season.

The finished size of the mats is about 15" x 15". We used the embroidery designs from the Chicken Set for a large hoop (5" x 7").

For the project we used 3 fabrics: 1/2 yard of light fabric for the central square, borders and binding, 1/4 yard of brown fabric and 1/4 yard of patterned fabric.
You will also need backing and batting.
 Cutting:
 For each place mat, out of light fabric cut:
                                         1 square measuring 9 1/2" x 9 1/2"

                                out of brown fabric cut:
                                         2 strips measuring 2" x 9 1/2"
                                         2 strips measuring 2" x 16 1/2"
                                         4 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
                                         2 strips 2 1/2" wide and the length 
                                           of the width of the fabric (for the binding)

                               out of patterned fabric cut:
                                       4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 5 1/2"
                                       4 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

 Assembly:
Sew the 2" x 9 1/2" brown strips to the left and right edges of the 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" square.
Take 4 light fabric squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" and 2 patterned fabric strips measuring 2 1/2" x 5 1/2". Sew 2 strips:
Sew the new strips to the left and right edges of the working piece.
Sew the 2" x 16 1/2" brown strips to the top and bottom edges of the working piece.
Out of the remaining pieces sew 2 strips with the following sequence:
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" patterned fabric square 
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" brown square 
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" light fabric square
2 1/2" x 5 1/2" patterned fabric strip 
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" light fabric square
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" brown square
2 1/2" x 2 1/2" patterned fabric square.

This is easier to understand from the picture below:

Sew the new strips to the top and bottom edges of the working piece.
Embroidery:
Embroider the designs from the Rooster Family Set. Use cut-away iron-on stabilizer. Cut away the excess stabilizer.

You can also use polyester craft felt instead of the stabilizer. After the embroidery is finished, cut away the excess felt around the embroidery. 

 Quilting:
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it. 

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted along the lines of the embroidery and then made stippling all over the mats. 

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length. 

Finish the raw edges with the binding.

We further embellished the mats with fabric flowers. You can make similar flowers or use flower buttons.
 The mats are ready. Enjoy! 
Happy Stitching!
