New snack mats

   While I was making the watercolor place mats, I put together a couple of snack mats.    A mug rug is not big enough for the island in the kitchen, and place mats are slightly too large.....snack mats are just right for here!





















 

   The size is about 9'' by 12''.  Perfect for a small plate and drink.  I used leftover binding strips to finish these off.    Since these will get a lot of wear and be washed over and over, I use a zig-zag stitch to finish the binding on the front.

    I watch Bonnie on Quilt-cam while finishing up all my bindings and started on some of the Boxes  Squared blocks that I had cut.   She shared her new pressing mat made from Alpaca fur.  Interesting......not sure I need one, but I am tempted.   Maybe I will check it out a bit more. 
Happy stitching.

Who cares about snacking when you can look at the mats? So uplifting in such gray weather.

Isn't it great to be able to make things that fit nicely in the available space? Those are delightful.

We don't have a 'sit at' bar, but, my kitchen table is oval, and, one of these days, I need to make some oval placemats, so that they fit the table better. So far I only have commercial ones being used.

These are very pretty, and won't show stains so badly. Another plus if Grands use them.

Yes, the size is perfect! I need to make new placemats for our table but I never thought of making smaller ones for the island. Will have to include a matching set whenever I get around to it. :o)

Those are so beautiful Debbie! I make all kinds of sizes of mug rugs and mats and we use them everywhere also.
