Mod Stack Placemats

Mod Stack Placemats

Pattern by Faith Jones of Fredh Lemons Quilts for Art Gallery Fabrics
Size:  12" x 18" (trimmed from 12.5" x 18.5" after quilting to fit the Meals on Wheels requirements locally)

This is a project for the Nanaimo Quilters' Guild.  They collect placemats & donate them to Meals on Wheels.  The Guild provided the batting - an Ultra Thin Poly.  It was lovely to use.

I used five assorted fat quarters for the centres and a brown Moda Grunge Basicgrey by Moda, Pattern #30150 for the background & binding.  The five fat quarters was enough for six placemats with some smaller scraps for another project.

It's a little hard to see in the photos but I quilted the placemats with horizontal lines approximately 0.5" apart.

One of the requests from the placemat committee is that we use an interesting fabric on the back so I chose this print from Shamah & Sons, Patt#5015M.

I have three finished & three waiting for more batting when Guild starts back up in September.

Happy Quilting!
