Mats Galore from the Scrap Drawer

Lots more singleton blocks, bits and bobs, fat quarter pieces and precut strips have been occupying my stitching time. 

The blocks in the top row were leftover Easy Breezy blocks (Bonnie Hunter free pattern). Extra Easy Breezy pieces made up the long skinny on the end. The other long skinny with the pink and gray was a cuttoff from the most recent table mat I made my friend.  I made the scrappy square-in-square tops some time back.  All got 1.5" borders, mostly from the fat quarter dresser for a faux binding.

Some 3" squares also got sewn up into a 16 patch.  They don't fit into my precut scrap system so this is a great  way to use them up.  I've since paired up all the patchwork pieces with backing from the fat quarter dresser. 


There happened to be a perfect sized piece of batting already on the cutting table for these two mats.  Simple ditch-stitching for both the blocks and a faux binding finish.  Just a few hand stitches to close the opening and call them done!  Perhaps I will find a place to sell these,  I can't keep them all!

Are you going to make a lot of small quilts-- mug rugs? placemats? Or combine them as a spare parts quilt?
