friday finish

I finished my quilted bathmat this week that I first showed here.  It is a practical finish that will add a little charm to my bath.  It is a simple 4 X 6 five inch square mat, but the fabric is gorgeous.  I quilted in the ditch of each row and also along the edge.



It is funny how one little change can make a difference in a room : )


My other finish this week was my velveteen pinkeeper.  I posted my tutorial here, and although it was another simple project, it is proving to be very useful!


I am linking up to Finish It Up Friday and TGIFF.

How cute, I like to see a little quilty stuff although the house, but I must admit, I hadn't thought about the bathroom. Great idea.

I love the colors of the bathmat! I would be tempted to not use it because it is so beautiful!

Ooooo - love the bath mat! I need to do that. Did you just use terry cloth for the back? Good to see you at TGIFF. :D

Cute bath mat. I made one about 5 years ago using a faded but still thick blue towel for the backing. I love it.

My husband has since learned that he is NOT to put bleach in every load of towels to "sanitize" them. LOL

I would never have thought about making a quilted bathmat, but it's absolutely charming!

Very nice bathmat. I put the non-stick shelf liner on the back of mine.
