This month at The Joyful Quilter’s table scraps challenge, the color is orange.
That worked perfectly into my project to use up some leftover scraps/pieces.
I had some leftover half square triangles from this recliner quilt I made way back when.
And recently there was a slab of this piecing leftover.
They all came together for this scrappy orange placemat.
I had begun a monthly block quilt-a-long before learning I don’t really enjoy making traditional sampler blocks.
So those would-have-been orphan blocks also were made into a placemat.
Then scraps from the Pink Stash Quilt also became a placemat.
The pink scraps did not lend themselves into much of an interesting design, so I made this section from a paper piece pattern called Diamond In Diamond by Sanjay Kilskinen that I found on Etsy.
Now I have three new placemats for dining...that are much more fun than what I had bought ready made.
It will be fun to add to this collection of placemats as I accumulate new scraps from new projects.
