I have had a winter fabric in my stash for some time and have wanted to do something with it. It is just a white and blue fabric with a winter scene. It is vintage themed children playing in the snow.
The white and blue is so clean and crisp. It is one of my favorite combination.
I cut the focal fabric into a 13 x 13 square and then added a coordinating 1 inch piece of fabric and another 3 inch piece of white with blue polka dots. Just a simple combination as I want the focal fabric to be just that.
I will be using my favorite thread which is Aurifil to quilt these place mats. A simple crosshatch pattern will give them texture but not take away from the print.
The binding will be the same fabric as the thinner inner border and the backing fabric is a Debbie Mumm crackled blue fabric.
These should be really a cute addition to someone's table for the winter season!
