A finish: table mats

This is my first finish for
Finish Along 2014

hosted by Katy at The Littlest Thistle.

My very short Q4 list was published here.

mats for our bedside tables.

Fabric: Bella solids: background - olive green; blocks  - from stash
Machine quilted with Aurifil 40 thread in dark green (5012)
Wadding; 100% cotton (the only one my LQS stocks) - from stash
Size: 15" (28 cm) square.
Pattern: (slightly adapted) A Martingale Freebie here. (You may have to sign in to access the pattern)

Now here is one of the mats again, after washing and in situ.

This was so easy, I made them in eight days from buying the dark green fabric to putting into the washing machine, which for me is the fastest ever! I know some people can get a whole king-size bed quilt together in that time, but I'm not that fast! I still have a few twosies over so there will be a matching seat cover for my dressing table stool sometime.

Happy Sewing

Those little blocks are jazzy and cute, and that's nice edging.
