Purple, Gray, and Teal Placemats

I have been getting a lot of requests to make placemats recently. Along with the order for the Beach Themed Round Placemats, I also created and shipped off a set of rectangular purple, gray, and teal placemats.

I made these placemats for a long time friend. We met in middle school when we were always seated alphabetically by last name. I had just moved to town, so as Yvonne Jones, I always sat behind Amanda Jones. We made up a story about how we were twins and our birthday was on April 1st. Despite that, I think we pulled a few legs for a day or two. In college I would drive hours to go back and visit with Amanda on spring break, and I got to meet her boyfriend (and now husband) Dom when they were first dating. The 3 of us had fun in a photo booth.

So, needless to say, I was excited to make these for Amanda, and I really enjoyed making this set of placemats. She wanted to be surprised by the details of her set of placemats, and now that she has received them I am happy to report she likes them and I get to share them here!

  1. love these! color and pattern! i used to think i didn’t like batiks, but i have a very similar one to that teal that i am using A LOT in my gypsy wife quilt…and i just bought a yellow floral one. they were both on clearace, which prompted me to buy them in the first place, but now i really like them. i don’t know why people dislike them so much. i especially like the polka dots on the binding. lucky friend 🙂

    I love these placemats. The colors are great and I really like the quilting. You did a great job and your friend is lucky to have them — and you! I’m making placemats – got one done and am dragging my feet on the others. Guess I should get them finished. 🙂

    Wonderful colors. Beautiful quilting! I’m curious what type of batting you use for placemats.

  6. Those are super adorable!! I love the batik binding…I think I have that print somewhere in my stash, actually! What a sweet gift for your friend 🙂
