Breadcrumbs placemats

What is it about spring that makes me want new placemats?  Last spring it was Shuffle, the year before it was Leftovers, and at least two versions of Geese Across the Table were springtime projects.  This spring, it's Breadcrumbs.

I shared a glimpse of these last month, but they are now quilted and bound and match the flowers on my table.  The matching flowers are a happy accident.

This pattern is going to become one of my "go to" patterns for quick gifts. It's quick and it showcases a print beautifully.  Pick a print in colors and theme to suit and it's a winner.  You can find the Breadcrumbs pattern in my shop or ask for it at your favourite quilt shop.

I love that even with a place setting, you can still see the design.  I'm always sad to see pretty piecing disappear under the plate!

Here's an unobstructed view.  You can see this version uses a single print, while the one at he beginning of this post uses two prints.  The pattern includes both options.  The version above is made with fabric from Banyan Batiks' Bear Paw Plaid collection, shipping to store in October 2021.   This plaid look is making me think of picnics.  It's a warm sunny day here, so maybe we'll set these out on the table outside for an al fresco supper tonight.

Meanwhile, I'm making more.  Sooner or later, we'll be able to have people over for a meal again, and I'll be ready!

  1. My favorite placemat pattern was Shuffle from last year. My 2 daughters both have sets of Shuffle placemats made for Christmas presents. I however, didn't make any for myself as usual. Maybe I'll make myself these new ones instead !

  2. I like to do quilt-as-you-go with 2 1/2" strips on a one piece backing. Really quick! Sometimes I do some straight line horizontal quilting too. I really like your new pattern!
