Fall Place Mats 2018

I just love these new Fall Place Mats.

It seems that fall is the time when thoughts of holiday-inspired projects seem to predominate.  I have been pretty fortunate this year and have completed many projects well before the season they are inspired by.  The first new place mats were of the Halloween variety.  you can check them out HERE.

Fall Place mats 2018

Recently, I started to updated my kitchen with new placemat designs.  I just finished these fun, paper pieced placemats and have some Halloween themed ones under way.

Design

For these fall-inspired mats, I chose to do a paper-pieced fall leaf.  After this was accomplished, it was just a matter of adding fabrics to make them the correct size.

Paper Pieced Pattern

I adore the final border fabric, the rich, deep colors and gold are gorgeous!

After putting them together, I sewed them all into one piece and took them to the long-arm.  While I could have done an overall E2E through the whole mess, instead I decided to do some sampling of different designs.  I actually like them all: Leaves, Swirls, Cross Hatch and Turkey!

Beautiful fall-inspired fabrics

The Final Product

The final product turned out so cute and with the quilting, they are reversible.  

Next Up… Christmas!
