Sneak Peek, placemats

I am a quilter, therefore I have and save scraps of fabrics. If I can get 1.5 inches from a piece of fabric, it is most likely sorted somewhere in my vast collection.

This is one thing I like to do with those scraps, string piecing. String piecing is an old technique that uses up those mountains of scraps. This picture is using this and putting scraps into blocks which I then put into place mats. I have used 6 colorways and made 6 place mats, each with the same overall look but quite different in fabrics within each place mat.

This go with everything look was inspired by my own dishes which have every color in the rainbow.
