Quilted Christmas Placemats

These quilted placemats feature the Christmas designs from the Redwork Christmas Block Set. The project is very easy and great for beginners. It can add that final decorative touch to your table this season.

The finished size of each placemat is about 14 1/2" x 21".

For 2 placemats you will need

  • about 1/2 yard of red fabric,
  • 1/4 yard of green fabric,
  • 1/2 yard of light colored patterned Christmas fabric.
You will also need fabric for backing and binding and a piece of batting.
For embroidery, you will need embroidery threads, iron-on cut-away stabilizer.


With a graphic pencil, divide the red fabric into twelve 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" squares. Embroider a design in each square.

Out of light colored fabric cut 34 strips measuring 2" x 5 1/2" and 4 strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding.

Out of green fabric, cut 24 squares measuring 2" x 2".

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. Quilt in the ditch.

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.
