Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang ~ The Mod Stack Placemat

Hello everyone! I’d like to start off today by thanking everyone for their kind comments on my last post about Vintage Quilt Revival. We are so excited about the book and can’t wait to share more as the year progresses. You guys are really the best!

Today I’m happy to share with you my last installment for the Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang, the Mod Stack Placemat.

Mod Stack Placemat Pattern by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

These placemats feature fabrics from three of Art Gallery Fabrics newest collections, Color Me Retro by designer Jeni Baker, Textures by designer Angela Walters and Carnaby Street by the wonderful Pat Bravo.

This placemat pattern is great for beginners. I paired the fabrics with a classic linen. My backing happens to be my daughter’s favorite print from the Carnaby Street line, making the placemat reversible.
