Jill's Selvage Placemats

Jill Bunis from New Jersey made a set of 5 pretty selvage placemats. She used wide selvage strips so the colorful prints show. A nice touch since she included lots of food fabrics. The backing fabric features garlic!

Take a look at Jill's blog to see the other placemats and some amazing boxes that she bought at T.J.Maxx: http://cre8fmomquilts.blogspot.com/. Also see the header at the top of her blog: it's a Black and White Zinger! Check it out.

What a wonderful idea! I anticipate seasonal placemats as my accumulated selvages permit.

Garlic fabric is definitely the perfect backing for placemats.
