Fiesta Time!

Image

All the while weaving these placemats I kept seeing Fiesta dinnerware in my mind's eye.

Image

 Okay, sometimes LeCreuset would also invade my thoughts, but you get the idea...

Image

13 different colours in total from gold to black and everything in between. 

Image

Imagine a beautiful table set with colourful plates atop these bright and bold placemats! Makes me want to scour CList for vintage pieces of my own!

Image

Each placemat is woven with 80% cotton/20% wool on a 100% cotton warp of autumnal colours.

Image

A tiny border of taupe accents the multicolour fringe and makes the whole group cohesive even though each one has it's own personality. Machine washable and dryer friendly.

A virtual FIESTA of colour!Now to weave some napkins that will join the party happening here.

Very nice, love the color!

Thank you! It's funny, when I flip thru the different colors I stop and think "wow, that's my favorite!" Then I look at the next one and think the very same thing!

Were they all done on the same warp?

Bonny J. Dutton

Yes all on the same warp. Fun weaving since they all look so different but it's the same simple treadling. It's all in the colours on this project.

Thank you! They have all found new homes and I'm dreaming of setting up another warp.
