I finished up the placemats that I made for the LAMQG holiday swap. Chris got them last night and she loved them!  She had asked for something for her kitchen with blues, neutrals and a vaguely beachy vibe.

Place Mats

They are so simple and quick to sew up.  I used linen for the background fabric, Konas Teal and Coal and the light blue is a Moda Crossweave.



The simple dense straight line quilting makes them lie nice and flat.


I’ll post a little pattern for these later this week. They would make a great Christmas gift for a friend!

    They are so crisp and clean looking. Not even “my” look, but I would enjoy making them!
