September Placemats

 I know it is only mid-month, but I have completed a bunch of placemats and I wanted to share them with you.


I made a couple from some orphan blocks.  I have to say, these go together far faster than those that I make from tiny scraps!




Here are two purple and two orange scrappy placemats.  Some of these were quilted quite a while ago.  I have a big stack of these waiting for me to sew the binding.  I try to hand sew at least one a night.




In a previous post, I shared I found a bag of bits all partially sewn together.  Well, here are some of the placemats I made with them.  I really like how they turned out.




I ended up having enough bits to make nine placemats.  I was also able to use lots of different colors for the bindings.



I added these 15 to my stack and I now have a total of 151 finished.  The stack is just under 24" tall.

I need to contact Meals on Wheels in early October to get a firm delivery date on when they want them.  I am still hoping for 200 total.  So I still might have time to achieve that goal!

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Oh wow, your goal of 200 seems like it might just be achievable. The stack of them all together is impressive!

These placemats are absolutely beautiful, Cynthia! The orange ones seem particularly festive for Autumn.
