Four Halloween themed placemats
12 x 18
In an effort to use my holiday fabrics this year (a Holiday Cheer Challenge) I made these place mats out of scraps for my Halloween loving daughter - family of four. Her daughter, my granddaughter, was born on Halloween. They love to decorate (I don't) and collect a lot of vintage Halloween items. The cat fabric in the center of the stars is a small feedsack piece my daughter found at a garage sale.
I used some bigger print scraps for the back sides, zigzagged together little bits of batting and quilted with some loops and stars on my DSM (the other day when I quilted Cattywampus). I didn't have any Halloween pieces big enough to use for binding so found an orange dotty fabric. And since I prefer binding sewn down by hand that's what I did.
Now back to dreaming of spring.
