My daughter Annie is planning her summer garden wedding and has chosen her colors: sage green, dark plum, cream, muted light blues, soft gray and peach accents. I’m surprising her by making placemats and vase mats to go under floral centerpieces for the reception tables. This is going to be fun!
I cut out and pieced the first top, referring to a little pencil sketch I made. Annie likes the random patch look. The placemats are not to match exactly. (Her bridesmaids won’t be wearing matching colors either, but each will wear a different color dress from this palette.)
I decided to applique´shapes within some of the patches using batik prints. Now I’m seeing a sunrise with peachy clouds overhead! I quilted using invisible thread.
Have you ever designed your own placemats? I like that it’s a small project, not so intimidating….
