Liberty Lifestyle ~ Placemats

Invited to create a small project for the Liberty Lifestyle Craft Blog I was happy to oblige.  

With Liberty Lifestyle stash on hand I could not resist combining the saturated colors of the Bloomsbury Gardens collection with a textured linen - Robert Kaufman Yarn Dyed Essex Linen in Flax.  

I absolutely love the look of simple patchwork squares - especially on small scale project - and have made a set of four placemats featuring two different designs.
A tutorial for this project - including fabric requirements and step by step instructions - to create your own set of placemats can found right here: Liberty Lifestyle Craft Blog.

Dress up your table setting! I have listed this set of four placemats in my Etsy Store.  

The listing details and more pictures can be found here:  Liberty Lifestyle and Linen Patchwork Placemats

Happy Stitching!


  1. Hi Rita,

    These sold so quickly on Etsy:(. I know you're super busy, but would you consider an order for another set of these placemats in the Liberty fabric. I have a lovely quilting friend who adores Liberty and they'd make the perfect birthday present.

    Thanks so much for the inspiration that your blog brings.


    1. Hi Michele

      Thank you for your inquiry! Could you please email me if you would like to discuss a custom order? My email address is redpepperqiults@gmail.com

  2. These are wonderful. I especially love the fabrics on the linen background.

  3. Love these...the linen really sets off the liberty!

  4. where do you get your tags? love them!

  5. Gorgeous! I particularly like the combination with the linen.

  6. Lovely. You have given me some ideas about what to do with some jute cotton I have been hoarding. But of course, your piecing is brilliant, as usual.

  7. Hi Love them!!!! The combination of linen gives it a real farm style look!!!!

  8. Hi Rita! Wonderful combination with the Kaufman Flax. I really love these placemats. Beautiful work!
