Placemats

At our guild a few years ago, we had a request from a member to make up placemats for Meals on Wheels. This is an organization that delivers meals to seniors or house bound folks. All the donated placemats were delivered along with Xmas dinner to clients that year.

These are my five that were made for her. The placemats were made envelope style ….. there are no bindings on them. They went together very quickly and all were machine quilted. I hope they brightened someone’s day! :o)

And, you have a great day, too!

What an absolutely great idea. Your placemats are so cheerful and bright; they must have been much appreciated by those people who were served their meals on them.

What a nice idea. My Dad enjoyed Meals on WHeels for the last years of his life and I know he would have loved a gift like that.
