March Placemats

 March was a very productive month for my placemat project.  I finished a total of 19!

For those who are not familiar with this project - at the end of the year all of these will go to my local Meals on Wheels to be handed out with one of the holiday meals.

I finished up the last of the brown mats I started in February.  Five I framed in a dark brown binding and five I framed in a lighter brown.

I don't have a lot of small yellow scraps, so I was only able to finish up four in yellow - the March RSC color.

I also finished a couple of placemats made from some orphan blocks and leftovers.

These last three were made from scraps I just made when cutting some projects I haven't even shared with you yet!  Rather than toss them in the scrap bin, I decided just to sew them together into a mat.

I now have a stack of 73 placemats that are ready to be donated.  
The stack comes up to about my mid-calf.

I have already sorted out my pink scraps for April.

I will share those placemats later this month!

What a great idea to donate the placemat's to Meal's on Wheel's! Quilter's are so very kind. What is the finished size of your placemat's?

What a beautiful place and cause for scraps to land. Nicely done.

It's so much fun to watch the stack grow. Hooray for using up the yellow scraps and I love that you are so committed that you keep making other placemats this month as well. said...

What a wonderful use of scraps and a terrific charitable sewing project. Your mats are all so fun. The colors work well together and I'm sure they will be well loved and washed often.

What a great idea to use the RSC color of the month as the inspiration of meals on wheels placemats. Blown away by the stack you have created already this year.
