Quilted Placemats

Well hello there, my gorgeous friend.  You get prettier every time I see you, and I'm not just saying that.

So, last week I showed you my quilted table runner, which I really like.  And it was fun to make too, which is saying something since I've never quilted anything in my life.  I had so much fun in fact, that I decided to make some quilted placemats.

I love these bundles you find at the fabric store:

I have trouble with matching colors and patterns.  That's right, I admit it to the world: I am matching-deficient.  These bundles make it simple for me to put something together and not have someone say, "Those blues are all wrong together."  It can really dampen a seance, friends.

Using the same method as I did for the runner, I made placemats.  Easy-schmeasy.

I love them.  And since I have a frightening lack of placemats in my home, I might pick up a couple more bundles to make some more.

Now if you'll pardon me, I have to return to the seance... I think we've finally got Elvis on the line.

  3. Love these, and the fabric is super pretty! I have the worst time matching fabrics too, so I love buying those little bundles. :-) In case you didn't see it earlier, I featured this on my blog today! I'm stopping by to pin, and to let you know you can grab a Featured button if you don't already have one!


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
