'Quilt-as-you-go' placemats video tutorial

What could be better than a quilt so easy that almost quilts itself? Yes, that's quite a bold statement, but it's pretty close to what How To Sew meant with "quilt-as-you-go" technique: "when the top is done, so is the quilting!"
The item they've selected to showcase this handy method is a beautiful placemat. The only thing you have to do once the top is ready is add the binding. Voilá! A placemat able to cheer up the saddest and loneliest of tables.
In this article, you'll find a list including the materials needed for each placemat, as well as two different videos: The first one showcases the 'quilt-as-you-go' method; the second video demonstrates how to finish the placemat's binding.
