How to Make a Beginner Charm Pack Placemat! Video Tutorial & Sew Along
We're back with another fabulous video tutorial featuring Kimberly and guest Sherri McConnell.  What have they made this time? The sweetest quilted placemats! Sherri used the Little Ruby fabrics to make these sample placemats in the video.
These Charm Pack Placemats will have you sitting down to stitch in seconds flat - they're irresistible.  Easy to customize with different fabrics, trims, quilting and binding, you can make up a set of these stunners in no time.
Take a peek at the video above and then scroll down for more inspiration from Kimberly and the bloggers participating in our Sew Along! Fabric information and cutting instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
Eagerly awaiting the holidays? Consider whipping up a set of Cozy Christmas placemats like Kimberly did for her family of six!
Whatever theme, color scheme, or fabrics you use, these placemats will be super appetizing to sit down to at mealtimes.
We're so pleased to have these talented quilters sewing along with us. Please visit their blogs,
show them some love, and see how they've customized their placemats!
