Quilted placemats can be a fun way to dress up any table & quilting placemats using heat sensitive ink that disappears when you iron it makes it so easy to look like a pro!

In the video below I’ll show you how I whipped up 6 berry beautiful placemats for summer with the July Placemat Panel I designed for Riley Blake Designs. You can find them and the coordinating prints in stores and online now!
