Deck Your Table with Holiday Placemats December 03 2016, 0 Comments
I collect Christmas fabric like a squirrel stashes nuts! With my new self-proclaimed "Must use the fabric on my shelves instead of sit and stare at it" attitude, I decided to cut into some of it! I made one, yes only one for now, Mel's Mats placemat. I love, love, love how it turned out and you can bet I will be making an entire set this week for my table.
I dug through my Christmas stashed and pulled a bunch of green and red prints for the strips and paired them with one of favorite gnome prints! I used my favorite decorative stitch to quilt both directions and I love how it turned out. The little gnomes pop out from behind the scrappy strips in a playful way.
