First off, here are the measurements for you.
Here is the cut fabric for four of them. I considered another print for the borders, but I didn't want it too busy, so I just stuck with the solids.
First off, sew the 11x3 pieces to your center square. Sometimes I pin, sometimes I don't. What about you?
Press your seams and here is what your placemat looks like after that step.
First I sprayed the backing fabric (red) and placed the batting on top of it. I usually do this in two parts, the left side and the right side. I spray, put the backing on, and then smooth it with my hands to get out any wrinkles.
After that step, I do the same thing to the top.
And then....it is time to quilt. I used straight lines 1 1/2" apart and then put on the binding and you are all set!
