My kids are young and not the tidiest eaters. A lot of table clothes and placemats have been left stained and coated in their wake. So today I replenished the supply a bit with a visit to the scrap bin.
Lots of cutting (and unfortunately, recutting when I got my measurements wrong for the backing).
I used a quilt-as-you-go technique as I didn’t want binding on these. Loops in the dark blue areas and wavy gray lines in the scrappy columns. Then I sewed the backs to the fronts, right sides together, flipped them inside out, and stitched around the edges.
