I used some more of the strips I had cut for my baby quilt to make a table topper and place mats.
The table topper or center piece is 14 inches square - the strips range from 1.5 - 3 inches, notice I pieced some of the strips. This is just a basic log cabin that started with a 2.5 inch square.
Everything is from my stash; when the grand-kids and I made pillows last week I had pulled out some old polyester batting for them and I decided to use more of it for the place-mats. I used a template to mark the design that I quilted in the center.
Did you happen to notice that I only made 3 place mats? Most of the time it is just my dad, Builder Bob and me so this works perfectly.
