Merry Go Round Placemats For The Quaintest Table Setting

Easy Merry Go Round Placemats To Make For Table Flair.

These Merry Go Round placemats have more than one benefit. The main one being is that the placemats are perfect for a round table. The Merry Go Round pattern includes a round table topper for the middle. Push the placemats together and the whole set becomes a large table topper. When the table is cleared, leave the pretty center piece as table topper decor. Or re-position the placemats to create a curvy table runner. Make added centre pieces for an extra hot dish and use Insul brite. Make two extra trivets from another pattern included in this article. There are a number of ways to make these placemats with a different design each time. An added benefit is that they’re reversible.

1. This design by Bejeweled Quilts, is for placemats for a round table with a topper for the middle. You can do reversible for when you want something different. The pattern includes instructions on how to make the setting bigger if need be.


Make a setting for four or as many as you need. Make an extra set to use while one set is in the wash. Round table topper is 16 inches in diameter, place mats are 10 inches across the top 25 inches across the bottom and 11 1/2 inches long.

The fabric requirement for the setting is only one and 1/4 yard of main fabric, backing fabric, and batting. You will also need tissue paper or larger paper, a ruler and pencil. You might want to use Insul-Bright and cotton batting in the center circle if you want to make it heat resistant.

Using the same pattern choose fabric for any time of the year. This style will show off the prettiest of medium to large prints. Perfect for something new and fresh for the holiday table.



Beautiful holiday fabric for an appealing table set.


2. This placemat pattern offers an added center strip in the middle for extra decor, plus matching napkin and napkin rings. The pattern is free. The napkin and napkin rings pattern pieces can easily be used with any of the other patterns mentioned!


Using the same pattern as the one with matching napkin rings, but this time with fun chicken fabric for the kitchen table. Delightful.



3. This smart design offers placemats with Dresden blades, using strips of fabric. The pattern, Fan-Tastic placemats is taken from Gudrun Erla’s book “Fast And Furious Family“. You only need 9 fat quarters for four placemats and some binding.


So fresh in these vibrant Batiks made by Anne at Connecting Threads.

Using the same pattern from “Fast and Furious Family” the design is changed up a little by mixing strip widths.



Binding compliments the fabric beautifully.


Then position the placemats together in a row, creating an appealing curvy table runner! Designed to be reversible. Easy as!


4. How about this mesmerizing woven design taken from the book Make It, Take It by Krista Hennebury.  The tutorial from Connecting Threads for this gorgous woven placemat set also includes two trivets, along with the center topper.
Fabric strips were woven then stitched together by quilting using feather stitch.
