Quilted Placemat

My newest obsession... quilted placemats!  I saw a beautiful quilted placemat over at Sew, Mama, Sew! and knew I wanted something like that for our home.  Here is my first attempt:


I love the overall look and can't wait to make more to use on our dining room table.

I have decided against making a tutorial for this.  Instead, here are links to some great tutorials I found online:
Quilted Placemats
Patchwork Placemats
Simple Placemats

If you have hours upon hours to kill, go check out all of the amazing quilts participating in the Spring 2010 Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I am not participating (maybe next time!), but am very inspired by all of the lovely quilts.

Ooh I just hopped over here from your comment on my blog and I see you have so many lovelies here!
I love this placemat! The colours are absolutely perfect. I'll have to see what else you've been up to now! :D

Lovely placement Stephanie, love the fabrics chosen for it! Might have to have peek around the rest of your blog now that I'm here.

Lovely placement - wonderful fabric choices!

beautiful! I love the fabrics you chose.

Also, I received the safari baby gift set today. It's wonderful! Your work is very professional. I also loved that you wrapped it in baby tissue paper so that it's ready for gift giving. We'll be seeing my husband's cousin at a family reunion in a few weeks and giving them this gift to celebrate their first (long awaited) little one. I know they'll love this gift set :)

Thanks again (oh, and have you thought of selling on Etsy?)

I loved that placemat that SMS posted too! I made some last fall, but now I want to make a set for summer. Love yours!

Great placemat! I'm sure they are addicting. I'll watch for more.
