Quilted Easter Placemats with Redwork Embroidery

Easy and quick to put together, these placemats are perfect for the Easter table. They feature designs from the Redwork Easter Border Set for the large (5" x 7") hoop.
The finished size of each mat is about 17" x 22".

For each mat you will need:

  • about 1/2 yard of solid cotton fabric (we used bright yellow one) and
  • 1/8 yard of patterned color matching fabric (we used polka dot patterned fabric).
You will also need batting and the fabric for backing and binding.
For embroidery you will need light-weight cut-away stabilizer and embroidery threads.

Embroidery:

For each mat, graph the solid fabric into 8 rectangles measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (do not cut them out yet, you will do this after embroidery);

Working with one cell at a time, stabilize the fabric and embroider a design from the
Redwork Easter Border Set in the center of the cell.

Embroider one of the designs in each of the cells.

Cut away the excess stabilizer.

Cut out the squares. Trim the side edges, leaving 1/4" for seam allowance.
Align the designs and sew the rectangles into 2 rows with 4 rectangles in a row.

Cutting:

Press the seams of the rows open. Trim the rows to 8" x 19 1/2".
Out of patterned fabric cut 1 strip measuring 2 1/2" x 19 1/2" and 2 strips measuring
2 1/2" x 17 1/2".

Assembly:

Sew the patterned 2 1/2" x 19 1/2" strip between the embroidered rows.

Sew the patterned 2 1/2" x 17 1/2" strips to the left and right edges.

Quilting and Finishing:

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

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins. We quilted around the embroidery and all over the mat in a free-motion style. Remove the pins while quilting.

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 binding.

Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
