When I saw the gorgeous mantel designed by Mrs. Hines’ Class, I decided I MUST add some bunting to my autumn decor this year. I used up most of my fallish remnants making my fabric-tie wreath, but I DID have a reversible quilted placemat in just the right colors that hadn’t found its way into a project yet. I snipped it into triangles, zigzagged all the edges, then connected the tops with a strip of green fabric from my stash. I can’t wait to add it to the mantel! ♥
Thank you! 🙂
That is adorable! It makes me wish I had a mantle so I can copy your idea! : )
I think it would be lovely across a doorway or window, too! Go for it!!! 🙂
This really turned out great! 🙂
Thank you! It’s a little . . . different . . . but I like it, and the colors are perfect! 🙂
That’s awesome! You’re very talented…..
Awww . . . thank you! Really, though, I just like to try new things! I wasn’t sure if this would turn out, but the placemat was only $1 in a bargain bin at Bed, Bath, and Beyond so I didn’t have too much to lose! 🙂
🙂 that’s great the $1 bin…those are the best bins…have a Great Day!
beautiful. looks great across the rough wood, too! I think my favourite side out is the stripey one. 🙂
That’s the side I picked, too! 🙂 I’ll have my mantle photo up tomorrow! 🙂
I love that it’s reversible and the colors are gorgeous! 🙂
Thank you! It’s funny . . . after I was ALL done I found ONE triangle on backward! But it’s clear at the end, and I decided that just gives it a little extra charm. 🙂
It looks great… Love it!
Thank you! I’ll have a photo of it on the mantle tomorrow! 🙂
love both sides 🙂
Thank you, Josee! I ended up using the stripes . . . until I change my mind! 🙂 Mantle photos tomorrow! 🙂
What a great idea! You’re full of them of course, but really, this is so clever. In my favorite seasonal motif too.
Thank you! Lucky me to have that placemat just sitting there on my shelf waiting for the right project to come along! 🙂
I love your positive spirit.
You are so talented! Love that you used placemats. Thanks for the link back.
Thank YOU, Sharon! I want to make some with letters next time! 🙂

I love this, I have never made one before and I really want one. I think I need to learn how to sew.
You’re so handy at figuring out gadgets and reading and following instructions, so you’d be really good at sewing! Start with a pillow and go from there! 🙂
