 So did I make a new pillow or…..a placemat??

Nope, it is a place-mat! I just laid it on top of my Roly Poly Owl pillow – I couldn’t resist laying it on the pillow to see what it looked like. When I want to try out something different I usually make either a mug rug or a place-mat. What I wanted to show with this was the difference in size of the maple leaves. I did one using the Accuquilt GO! Baby Fall Medley die and the other one using the Sizzix Big Shot and Leaves #2 die.

I really like both dies and they have different uses depending on what you want to make. The leaves were cut from a beautiful fat quarter of batik that I wish I would have had more of.

I cut my backing a couple inches bigger and after I quilted it I trimmed it leaving about 3/4 of an inch. Then I folded it over and sewed it down on the front as binding.

I did my usual appliquilt type applique and then stipple quilted the background.

We now have ONE new maple leaf place-mat…..you just never know what will show up on our table! The maple leaf in my signature is one of the leaves I made and then deleted the background in Photoshop.

Today we head to town as Builder Bob is going to remove and install a new garage door for my girlfriend….what a sweetie!

  14. It looks great as either the placemat or the pillow and I love that batik and can understand why you wish you had more , just perfect for leaves.

  15. Oh Connie, your pillows and placemats are beautiful. Inspirational. Gosh, these would also make such great Christmas gifts too. But right now I just want to make them to decorate my home. Love them.

    Thanks for sharing.

    You couldn't have found a fabric that was more perfect for this project.
    Love it.

  17. I can see why you want more of the batik – it does make gorgeous leaves.

  18. Just wondering if I could borrow some of those little elves that must work in your sewing room? I need help for Christmas. : )

  19. love the placemats! But roly poly owl pillow is just adorable! Great fabric choices.

  20. Denise :) says:

    Great job! I like the place mat better than the pillow, too — It needs company now!! 🙂

  21. That batik is perfect for fall leaves! A table of completely different but similar placements made with a unifying theme or color would be very pretty.

  22. The batik for the leaves is so beautiful. My favorite is the pillow.
    Have a nice day and take care
