How to Make a Quilted Flower Placemat

It won’t be too long that spring will be upon us. I thought to make these fun quilted flower placemats to get out of the doldrums of winter. This is a fun little quilting project for the beginner sewist and quilter. All you need is the pattern, some fabric and some batting to create these cute flower placemats. These placemats do not require binding which make them even easier to make. If you would like another simple placemat project check out my simple quilted placemat project.
