My August ’17 One Monthly Goal was to quilt and bind four placemats for the daughter of a longtime friend and her new husband as a wedding gift. I’m pleased with how they turned out. See my August ’17 One Monthly Goal post for more information on the pattern by Elizabeth Hartman and my color choices.
Each of these placemats shrank a full inch in both length and width after I washed and air-dried them, so they are now 12″ by 17″ which still accommodates a large plate. I did not pre-shrink the fabric but may do so the next time I make placemats.
Do you generally pre-shrink your fabric for quilting projects?
