mini quilt monday

posted a day later : )

mini quilt monday


Have you heard about mini quilt monday? Malka from stitch in dye has started a group for mini quilts on flickr. I'm not sure if you are supposed to make the whole thing on monday. Be finished on monday. Just post it on monday. I don't know. But I had 5 of these blocks left from Doll Quilt Swap 2, so I made another, put it all together and finished it with bits of leftover binding.

and just between you an me.....yes, it's a mini quilt, but it's also a placemat quilt. You know I've declared it the year of the placemat.

great backing fabric from Calamity Kim


So are you interested in making a placemat quilt? Need a little incentive to try your hand at one? I'm going to host a placemat quilt swap soon! Wanna play?

With a weekly series of placemats, your meals are going to be wonderful, no matter what you cook!

ha! the last mini quilt that i made reminded my husband of a place mat. i told him it was too nice to use it for a placemat...i didn't want it full of grease.

That's a gorgeous placemat! I don't think I'll swap, but they'll be fun to see.
