Hexagon Quilted Placemat



I have so much scrap fabric, it’s suffocating me. I’ve decided to do some small projects starting with this placemat using Star Trek fabric from a baby quilt I made a while back. Stitching a hexagon is much easier than I thought it would be!


I started by arranging 4×4 inch squares in the order I planned on sewing them.

IMG_1479I sewed the squares together using a 1/4″ seam allowance and pressed them flat with a hot iron.


Using a hexagon template, I traced it in the center of the squares. Since I have yet to find a fabric marking tool that is satisfactory, you can see the tracing. *sighs*


Fleece is sandwiched between the top and back layer.


LOVE the backing fabric. I would like to buy more of it for a dress in the future.


I stitched around the tracing and carefully again a 1/2″ away from the original stitch.


Instead of tracing numerous lines, I “guessed” by following the closest stitch and when I was getting to a corner, I pivoted the foot slightly and checked the spacing before I continued stitching.



I used leftover double wide bias tape in grey. It was a pain in the butt and the hardest part of this project.


Complete! A square placemat. Not too bad considering I didn’t have a pattern. Until next time, happy stitching!
