Back to sewing some

I bought a 8 pc bundle from
 They are food or veggie prints. I add a green and tan to the mix and I am making Bargello type placemats.

I took a picture of this and realized the bottom row was not right. So ripped it off and corrected it. 

I cut the 8 half yard pieces into strips. The strips are 2.5 inch cut the width if the fabric. Then I added the green and tan with that. I stitched them into a tube after stitching the widths together.

I then subcut the tube into 2.5 inch strip sets. After getting 7 for each placemat. I then opened up the tube to each row in a different spot. As you can see the colors go diagonally across the mat. 

I wanted some large placemats since my table is so large. I have white and deep red dishes. So this will work for covering the table and  make a bright splash to a table setting.

Today is Valentines Day. Hope you have a Great Day. It is also my 66th Birthday. I plan on it being a quiet day. Hopefully sewing. Take Care Chris

That's great I have a few bits and pieces of vegetable fabric, I'll have to dig around and find them so I can make something with them!
