sunny day...chasin' the crumbs away

the newest set of quilted placemats is ready to picnic! set your table in the sun with this sextet of bright, blossomed beauties. the 16" x 12 1/2" surface is roomy enough to seat silverware and saucers in comfort and style. the quilted cushion turns each mat into a pillow for your plate. and they are as individual as your picnic-mates, since every one has its own haphazard design. to keep everything equal around the table, there are a few common characteristics shared by all. multiple cuts of flowers growing in golden fields are pieced together in the middle, while the border is cut from the same cloth as the backing. one look at them and you can tell they're ready for summertime treats like lemonade, watermelon and corn on the cob. are you?
