Four Place Mats


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.

This was my goal #6

Q1 Finish-Along

Cute placemats! Your daughter will get a lot of use out of these and the orange binding looks perfect. I enjoy hand binding also and I think it looks better than machine done too.
