The re-use of fabric for Christmas projects
Together with the women from the Quilting Bee Sparta, I have made a lot of Christmas ornaments, mug rugs, table runners, cushions, and the good thing is that I haven't bought any fabric. I just used scraps, small ones and bigger pieces; left overs from previous years.The pale yellow square is from a very old curtain, with some holes in it. But...there were enough good parts to use for the inner part of the placemats. The lovely Christmas fabric around it was a gift, donated to us a few years ago. It is difficult fabric to use for patchwork because it has already a "patchwork" pattern from itself. But I think that it worked perfect for these placemats. The English Paper Pieced star is from hand-dyed cotton.
