Just gather up......dump out......or go through your little scraps. Have fun playing and placing them like puzzle pieces! I made these mats about 16" x 12".
Something I did different than Amanda Jean was go ahead and place all my scraps out at once and pin down with a straight pin.......easy peasy.......these place mats are already sandwiched with batting and a backing! Isn't that neat? They will be finished and ready for binding when you get all your scrap pieces sewn on. LOVE THIS!
I did use my walking foot to sew them down.....afterall.....it's already a mini quilt.
I sewed the scraps down using a good 1/4"+ seam allowance......will cut down on them ravelling out when they are washed.
So here is how they look from the back......cute AND so easy peasy! I have made several of these for gifts. When we were invited out for Thanksgiving dinner I took some to my hostess using red and white polka dot binding and apple fabric on the backing. I sent these to my friend Gail in Michigan.......hope you are enjoying yours Gail!!!
