Simple Spring Table Runner or Place Mats


Hey everyone! It’s been a while and I’ve missed you! In case you don’t know me, I’m Natalia Bonner, I blog, sew and create over at Piece N Quilt. Take a second and stop by my blog. Today I’ve created a fun table runner or some darling placemats for you to enjoy.

1 Sunkissed Layer Cake
2 Yards coordinating fabric for background
2 Yards coordinating fabric for backing & binding
Buttons

Begin by tracing an 18″ circle onto your background fabric. I used a large mixing bowl for my template.
You will use the templates included for your applique pieces. I prefer to use starch applique. You can find my full tutorial here.

For the daisy place mat you will use a green background, add 10 half circles as shown in the image above.

Then add a grey 8″ circle.
Then add 9 pink 2″ circles and I green 2″ circle.
Machine quilt the square and then cut to size and bind after machine quilting.

For the Spring place mat you will first applique 6 small orange petals onto 6 grey petals. Off-set those and applique onto green background.

Add a large print circle and a small pink circle to the center.

Add the word “spring”.
Machine quilt the square and then cut to size and bind after machine quilting.

For the Daisy Wheel cut applique 1- 8″ green circle and 1 -7″ white circle.

Applique 6 pink daisy flower petals.

Add a large yellow center and a small pink center.
Machine quilt the square and then cut to size and bind after machine quilting.

For the dots place mat, you will applique one 7″ yellow circle in the center.
Then applique 12 small green circles around the outside and 1 green circle to the center.
Machine quilt the square and then cut to size and bind after machine quilting.

Now that you have created your darling placemats it’s time to turn them into a table runner.
To the left side of each place mat you will add 1 button.

On the right side of each place mat, you will make a buttonhole.
And that’s it! You’ve created some quick and simple placemats or one darling table runner!

4 – 18″ round placemats or 1 table runner.
