Another Quick Finish

This is the third placemat I have made from the scrap bin. There were a lot of little William Morris prints in a random scrap bag that someone gave me, and I cut them to either a large or small square, or a rectangle. I sewed them together like a jigsaw puzzle and really enjoyed the process. The scraps looked pretty in the bag, but seeing them all sewn together is a bit much! Perhaps it needed some sashing to give the eyes a place to rest?

Oh well, it's done now.

It has another William Morris fabric for the  backing. I did some minimal stitch-in-the-ditch quilting.

Here are all three placemats on the design wall. I have a couple other bags of scraps waiting to become a placemat next year!

It is a little bit busy. What do you do with your placemats? Are they to be given?

I love "busy-ness" in a scrappy piece--I do busy a lot;))) Very pretty grouping of Wm. Morris prints...certainly way too pretty to not use up..
hugs, Julierose

Placemats are a great way to use up scraps and get creative with playing with design. They only need minimal quilting so finish up quickly.
