Maggie from Smashed Peas and Carrots guest blogs in the Color Your Summer series at Kojo Designs with a tutorial showing how to make placemats from laminated cotton. The waterproof surface wipes clean easily. And though the designer laminated cottons tend to be expensive, you can a set of 4 placemats from just 4 fat quarters! (Fat quarters of laminated cotton are a little bigger than fat quarters of regular quilting cotton.) Get the tutorial.
