Scrap patchwork mat

This is the second of these mats I have made. I use them for bathmats mostly, but will probably make one for the kitchen sometime.


There is such a freedom in grabbing a bunch of scraps and just cutting and sewing as you go and letting the mat take on whatever shape it will. I started with the skewed log cabin block in the centre and it just grew from there. Great fun and it was made from beginning to end, including machine quilting, in under 3 hours.


I back these mats with old towels that have seen better days. With their frayed ends removed and then quilted to a patchwork top they still have years of use left in them.
