And wouldn't you know it, almost the same day, I had just shared these fun Grow and Dot. Dot. Dash Charm packs on the blog from my Sew Sampler box. Do you remember how I was waiting for the perfect project for them. Serendipitous!!! You see, a few years back, I designed this fun, reversible, table topper that was featured in the Moda Sweet Celebrations book. We use it for all of our family birthdays and special occasions. Well I thought, how cute would it be to have matching placemats!!! Perfect ;)
And aren't they just so fun together!!! I used the same straight line quilting and a similar black and white polka dot binding. And thing about Me and My Sister Designs fabrics is that these current lines still match their lines from 3 years ago. It's like i made it all as a fun set!!! So excited :)
And you know I couldn't stop there. Each Charm Pack makes up 4 placemats, and since I had 2 Charm Packs to start with I figured I might as well cut up some more ;) Doesn't the trimmings just make the happiest little rainbow!
I was able to make 2 more cool colored placmats and 2 more warm colored placemats from the charms in the 2 charm pakcs ;) Don't they all just look so fun together. I can't wait to get them all quilted up and bound.
And then, since there are 7 in our family, I figured I best make up one more placemat. So I went through the remaining charms and made up this fun rainbow placemat. I have a feeling the birthday boy or girl is going to want to sit at this one ;)
These Charm Pack Placemats are just so much fun to make, and as you can see, it is hard to stop at 1 or 2 :) Kimberly and Sherri have put together this fabulous video to help you along every step of the way in making your Placemats and have shared more details over at the Jolly Jabbber, so be sure to check it out ;)
And I just had to share one more picture of the finished placemats. Aren't they just too cute for words ;) I can't wait for Sunday, I think come Father's Day we will have quite the matching table ware :) So excited!!!
Thanks for stopping in today :) I best be off to finish quilting 5 more placemats if they are all going to ready for Sunday!!
