Summer Playmat



If you're looking for a quick, quilted, coverlet for your little one,
then
"Help is on the Way"

 that's the name of this fabric line by
Jennifer Pugh for Wilmington Prints
the play mat pattern is free
and the center piece (with all the roads) is a panel
which makes this one a winner for quick piecing
there are lots of added details for this imaginary little town
it took less than a day for cutting, piecing, and quilting

Vroom! embroidery file for purchase here











the next day, I set to work 'producing' little vehicles
via my embroidery machine











the pattern calls this a play mat
but it would serve as a great picnic blanket this summer
and when you're not using it at the park or the beach or on your little's bed

just fold it up nicely and keep it within easy reach for all the summer fun!

my play mat is on display at Nuttall's here in Layton
and if you are in the local area, be sure to sign up for the 

go ahead all you talented, sewists,
make one of these and go play with the littles in your life
