Sew Kitschy – A Placemat Finish!

Leave a comment

I started participating in the Sew Kitschy quilt-along (QAL), hosted by Kristy at Quiet Play, with the intent to make a quilt for my pastry chef sister. I lost steam a little before I made it halfway through. Then, when I thought I might revive the project, my sister saw the blocks and thought they might not fit her home décor bedroom aesthetic. (I guess not everyone loves BRIGHTS! haha)

I rescued the project and am able to check one UFO off my list by turning the finished blocks into placemats instead. The kitchen theme works perfectly in the kitchen! As an added bonus, the blocks match an oven mitt and some potholders I made my sister for Christmas a few years back.

Glad to have one more project off my list. And my cutting mat.
