Or Feature Applique, a Fussy Cut Motif and More!
The interesting shape of these sweet table mats immediately caught our attention. Then the beautifully embroidered centers drew us in and we soon realized how special they are.
Each of the four mats is embroidered with a phrase from the child’s grace, “Thank You for the World so Sweet”. Together they are simply delightful.
If embroidery isn’t your thing, play with the center and create your own special mat. Place a beautiful fussy cut motif there or a piece of a vintage embroidered linen. Or, choose a pretty applique design.

Whether you make one mat or a set, the colors you choose and what you feature in the center will determine the personality. Go soft and sweet, vivid and bold or something in between.
Or, enjoy recreating the pattern as it was designed by Val Laird. In the end you’ll have a wonderful set to display just about anywhere (we can also imagine them in frames).
The mats are 11″ across.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
