    Wedding present placemats (8), napkins (8) and tablerunner in a grape motif

    I made these for my nephew and his new wife.. My sister had gone to visit and said they had a grape motif going on in the kitche/dining room. I will still do them a quilt but I had this fabric given to me and wasn't sure what to do with it. It also used up some of my odd bits of batting too!

    I really like these! My daughter in law is into wine themed items and I purchased wine fabric similar to this. The green matches her walls-I like your pattern, so thanks for sharing. You have given me ideas for birthday coming up!

    I too, just finished a wedding present for my great niece of a set of 4 of place mats, mug rugs, napkins and a fabric bowl all from left over black and white quilt scraps. And, I pieced some batting scraps to boot! The gift was well received and the cost to me was zilch! I love it when that happens! I love your grape theme and am sure the newly weds will as well. Thanks for sharing.

    They are great! I have some similar fabric, AND a DSIL and DBIL who own vineyards in Oregon, so hoping to get something done with it in the near future.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
