Can a mini quilt be a napkin? Or a napkin a mini quilt? Of course it can! No better place to show off your favorite fabrics, and your fancy patchwork skills than the laps of your dinner guests.
I had such a blast this week teaching a beginner-friendly patchwork napkin class at my favorite local craft shop. What a joy to see the satisfaction in my students faces when they opened up their very first half-square triangle. Magic! And I just love that their first patchwork project wasn’t a bed quilt or a baby quilt. Not that I don’t adore bed & baby quilts (understatement of the century)- but what I really love about quilts is that they can be anything you want them to be…not just bed coverings & couch throws, but journal covers, bags, trivets, curtains, pillows, clothing…anything! Including pretty little napkins :)
I think I’m going to keep this set for myself, but wouldn’t these also be a fabulous housewarming or hostess gift? Or a special wedding gift with the couple’s initial embroidered in the corner? Such a unique and unexpected gift.
Hope you’re stitching up something fun & lovely this week too!
