Pattern Testing

I just realized that I never blogged about this finish from June.  Leanne from Devoted Quilter asked if anyone wanted to test her Spin place mat pattern.  I volunteered and this is what I made.  My boys love purple, so that is why I decided to use this fabric.  I love the way it looks with just two fabrics.  I used the same two on the backing for fun. 

Leanne's pattern is now available.  The only change I made besides just using two fabrics, is making the vertical strips all finish at two inches.  Hers has different dimensions, but my family likes things more even and symmetrical. 

I have only made one so far, so my boys are excited to use this on special days.  Cheetah just reminded me that he gets to use it for his birthday this month. 



  1. Looks great, and I like how your boys are already lining up special events to use it for! :)

  2. Love those colors. I'm generally a more even and symmetric person as well. Will you be making more or stick to just one and make it the special occasion/privilege placemat?

  3. I like the idea of having a "special" placemat. Such a cute idea and such a nice placemat!

  4. I like that you are using the mats to make special events even more so!

  5. As always, your work is lovely. It's a great idea to use it for special events.

  6. I really like the movement the purple fabric gives the pinwheel! Adorable that your boys are claiming dibs on it for special occasions. The best seal of approval :)

  7. It looks great! Thanks for testing the pattern for me!
