Batik Place Mats

As I'm sure you all know there is a Lets Twist to the 60's with Batiks Hop going on right now.  For the life of me I couldn't come up with an idea related to the 60's (even though I was in High School and College at the time) so I didn't sign up.

Last week, a friend called and asked if I could whip up a set of place mats for their house.  Apparently whenever I've made place mats for them in the past they were always themed.  Christmas, Halloween, Summer etc. etc. etc.  This request was specifically for something to use on an everyday basis.

Because I have been viewing wonderful Batik creations on the hop,  I pulled out my Batik bin and came up with these mats.  I love them.  They are quilt as you go.  Couldn't have been easier to do. I think is took me longer to sew down the binding than it did to sew up the place mats themselves.

I found this great fabric for the backing in my stash.  

Pretty much made them reversible.  Do I get credit for making 2 sets ?

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day


  1. Oh, I like these very much and yes, credit for two sets for sure.

  2. Yes, credit for two! Beautiful!

  3. I sure like string-piecing like that. It's a two-in-one step - piecing and quilting. The place mats turned out beautifully. What did you use for batting?

  4. Cute place-mats Selina, you should have joined the blog hop!! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Your website must give a clear message having a goal-oriented direction,
    setting you apart from your competition. Businesses will heavily dependant
    upon customers for survival, without customers a business would cease to exist.
    The business degree raises one's social standing: in simple terms,
    it opens for you personally doors that would have otherwise remained closed for your requirements.
