Amanda a few months back! I haven't worked much with precuts and had a really hard time getting inspired. I couldn't move past using it in a quilt. Lucky for me, Sara made an adorable patchwork mat last week and it hit me! I need a kitchen mat too! I'm using mine in front of the sink! Something pretty to stand on!
This was a super fast, fun project once I got started! I thought I'd write up a few details in case you'd like to make your own!
- 1 charm pack (or 40 5" squares)
- 2/3 yard of backing fabric (25"x38" piece)
- 25"x38" piece of batting
- 1/4 yard of binding fabric
Finished Size: 36.5"x23"
Piece 5 rows of 8 squares using 1/4" seam allowance. I choose to do mine random! Press seams as you go. Cut your backing and batting 25"x38". Baste. Quilt as desired! I choose to do diagonal quilting! Cut 3 2.5" binding strips. Bind and wash! :)
What were you all up to this weekend? :)
