Another set of placemats!
I actually finished these placemats last month but I was waiting to share them until I got the napkins dyed. The napkins turned out a little brighter than I wanted but they will work just fine. I don't get too fussed striving for perfection in placemats! These are for just the fun of it but I have some many for myself that it's time to give some away.
These were made with the leftover blocks and fabric from the veterans quilt that I quilted this weekend and will share in tomorrow's post. I had exactly enough HST blocks left over to make 4 placemats.
I wanted the napkins to be a tad bit grayer (less turquoise, more orange) but they are still cute. I had some foam shapes and used the triangle one to stamp some Jacquard Color Magnet on the before dyeing. The stamped areas pick up a lot of excess dye.
I decided to have some fun quilting them with a different filler pattern in each one.
This is another set of 4 placemats that I will take on the family beach trip for my family members to choose from.
Tomorrow I'll have the binding finished on the veterans quilt made from these blocks.

I love your placemats and those fun napkins! What a great idea to use the triangle stamps and Color Magnet. They turned out very well.

You're a master at using up bits to make something useful. Your family is going to fight over these I suspect.

Your family will have fun choosing their set of placemats. I love watching people make the decision which quilt they want, always wondering if it will be the one I think they will choose.

Those are lovely placemats. The napkins are bright but they will add a spark to the table.

Beautiful placemats! I have to make some this weekend myself for a woman I work with. She wants them to give to her MIL for Mother's Day.
