Friday Finish - One Scrappy Placemat

I've been so wrapped up working on my Glitter blocks, I don't have much to report this week, but I did finally finish a placemat for Olivia that I made using the tiny slivers of fabric leftover from her flowering snowball quilt.  I've had this project hanging around taking up space for a few months, so when I cleaned my sewing room last week I decided to just finish the damn thing instead of putting it in the WIP drawer.  
I had weird curved little shapes left, about an inch at the widest point, so I decided to make some really skinny half rectangle squares.  I pay a lot for shipping and duty on all my fabric so I really try to use even the smallest of scraps.  Oh to live in the states again and have free shipping!... sigh.  (After making this I did throw the rest in the garbage - I'm thrifty not insane!)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts...


  1. This is such a festive placemat! It looks like Olivia is very pleased. Great use of those little curved pieces, and the bias striped border is just right for it, too.

  2. Beautiful work and a super use of scraps! Great job!
