the last two days were really hot around here. i took the bike to the s-bahn, driving through the park in the mornings and evenings and it was just beautiful!! what a great way to start and end a work day.
anyway, i did another mat, this time for the kitchen.
remember this one?? i think you bought it for me in Berlin-Mitte years (7 or 8??) ago. and i am sorry, but i had to let it go, it was turning kind of gross..
so this is the "before" shot (probably even wrong side up..):
and this ist the "after":
instead of terrycloth like on the bathmat i used two heavy-weight cottons and some poly-batting, quilted it and binded it with ready-made bias-tape in bright red.
the pink/red fabrics are from Rice (the melamin-company), the grey back is from Ikea.
I like the structure the mat has from the quilting i did,
however, this is just a first try, i am not too sure if i will keep this in my kitchen, i am not too happy with the fabric-choices.
i will keep you posted on this :-)
