Now you have the idea of using the Soho panel and some of the coordinates to make placemats. But, if you don’t need placemats, here’s another way to use the placemat blocks. You can use them to make a table topper or wall quilt!
Choose your favorite placemat block from the ones you just made, or create a new design. Make a total of 4 – 12½” x 18½” blocks. You’ll also need to cut 1 – 6½” square for the center of the table topper. I used black, the same color as the outer borders on the blocks.
Sew the blocks together as follows:
And now you have a table topper or, you could use it as a wall quilt! You could add another border if you wish to have a bigger quilt. You could also make this quilt using 4 different blocks for a very contemporary look. As long as the blocks are all 12½” x 18½”, they will work.
Now that you know how to make a table topper from placemat blocks, I’m sure you’re thinking of even more ideas for using the ColorWorks Concepts fabric from Northcott. Come back tomorrow and see some other designs that I came up with using this versatile fabric!
