For a while now, Mom and I have been talking about making some smaller-ticket items for the shop. One thing we’ve been talking about doing is making some simple placemats.
The other day, I had some time so I grabbed a charm pack from the stash.
It was called Chili Smiles, and I bought it for no other reason than it was darn cute! I had no plans at the time and this seemed like the perfect use for it.
The idea for these placemats is really simple – just six squares sewn together, and then surrounded with a border. It’s the perfect way to show off some really fun fabrics!
And it doesn’t get any more fun than these prints!!!!
I had a few charm squares left, so I put together a little pinwheel for a hot plate holder.
These will all get quilted and bound, and then be ready for the shop sometime next month! Stay tuned!

They are fun! Now I want some guacamole.
Those are just wonderful! Such perfect fabric for that project.
What a great idea! The fabrics are certainly colorful and fun.
Everyone is right! Those fabrics are perfect and fun for this project. I think smaller projects in the shop are a brilliant idea.
Awwww! The little avocados have FACES!
What fun place mats! They make me want to go cook some chili, but we just finished supper!
What fun–the placemats will be a nice addition to the shop!
