Although I was trying to be productive this week, working on adding borders to the Rainbow Jungle...
I also had an idea I wanted to try that turned out to be quick and easy! I got out some Christmas scraps and cut them into 2.5 inch strips.
I also cut a backing and some batting about 14 x 18 inches.
Using the quilt-as-you-go technique, I sewed the strips down to the batting and backing and top-stitched each strip on the right side.
I shared this picture the other day - the backing and binding.
I ended up with two fun Christmas placemats for the dinner table!
These measure 12.5 x 16.5.
A few years ago I had made napkins out of the penguin fabric, so now our table is all set.
Now back to those Rainbow Jungle borders - just one left to measure and sew on!
