November being one of those shorter months, with holiday and all the pre-pre-Christmas preparations, my monthly minis are small and simple.
Building on October's mini which was my 50 Shades of Brown turned hot-dish mat, I made two smaller matching mats. All are intended for my son and DIL's Christmas gift, as they have a brand new kitchen and requested some mats for their island.
I made several more, even more simple, some with minimal to no piecing involved, here is just one. I ended up with a few extra yards of this fabric due to the online shop's cutting error when they didn't want the too-small piece returned. I've loved this fabric since first seeing it back in 2012 or 2013, and have made gift placemat sets for several people. There's just about enough left for two more placemats for us, if and when I get around to it.
and the back, from scrappy strips.
Each of these particular hot pads/potholders measures about 8 inches square.
I'll link to Wendy's month-end mini roundup at The Constant Quilter when she publishes her post.
Til next time, happy quilting!
These will make great gifts! That is great fabric for the kitchen. It's so nice to use handmade things in the kitchen.
That is cute fabric! Good finishes for the month, heck, any finish for the month is good, says she who has nothing done! Enjoy the time for the season.
Fabulous! I love both of them. Your daughter in law will love them!
Isn't it fun to use your quilting talent to make gifts for others. The mats turned out great.
Super cute fabrics. They will make great gifts. I'm afraid I was delinquent this month so your minis look fabulous.
Great use of fabric ... all of them!
(I need to make more useful goodies)
Good use of leftovers from previous projects. I love the blue/brown of your mini mats.
Those will be so useful as well as decorative for serving.
Son and DIL are going to love their new mini mats! I love all of your fabric choices.
What a nice gift these will make, especially as they've been requested! That's the best scenario. I'm curious as to whether you added Insulbrite as protection for a countertop or tabletop. Or just batting?
Great holiday gifts and very cute November minis!
Thank you so much!
