I realized today that these place mats have not made it to my blog. OMG! Now, why is that? Probably because somehow these place mats are almost always on my table. After a wash today, they are back on the table!
I love the look and colors of the fabrics, and that I used variegated thread to match.
I made these place mats almost 2 years ago from a kit that I picked up at the Quilt Rack in Vegreville. This is one of the most unique quilt stores I have been in. The best word to really describe it would be haberdashery as part of the store sells quilting and notion supplies, and other part is a family clothes store (mens, ladies, shoes, accessories etc.)!
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
