2014-8 Harvest Placemats

harvest-placemats

 

These placemats began when I found four small panel prints in the scrap bank at my quilt guild.   The bins are wonderful.  We can drop in our own scraps and take someone else’s scraps.  This is a wonderful resource when you are trying to make a colour controlled scrap quilt.

I liked the colours of these panels and pulled from my stash an orange stripe for the inner border and an olive green for the outer border of the panel.  The quilting is a double crosshatch that I created as a digital file executed with a gold thread that gives a nice texture to the placemats.  They were then bound with a coordinating olive fabric with hand stitching to the  back.
