Wip Wednesday - Placemats!

A few weeks ago I decided it was time to get "a decent set of placemats" off of my future "To Do" list and onto the "Current WIP" list.  (Why did I ever buy placemats that need to be ironed??)

I started to make a set of eight with a matching runner, but then I realized I could get twice the mileage out of them if I made them double-sided… lightbulb moment!  I dug into my WIP drawer and pulled out some wonky strips I had started making more than three years ago, and decided to finish them and put them on the back.

 They're not my favorite color palette, which is probably why they ended up in the WIP drawer, but my husband loves them, and well, I hate to waste fabric.  I'm going to unify the two sides with a simple black border.  
Now for the Habitat side...

I really like it.  It's a shame I have to cut it up now!

Linking up with Freshly Pieced...


  1. It is definitely a shame that you need to cut that up for place mats, but I'm sure they will look amazing when they are done.

  2. Ooh, I like the scrappy placemats. I'd love to see how you finish them. Placemats are also on my to-do list!

  3. These will be fun. You're brave to cut into it ; )
