My husband bought a heavy duty commercial grade cookie sheet a few years ago. We didn't bake much then and now we aren't baking at all, so I was using these cookie sheets (a set of 2) as trays for my crafts/sewing. My husband wanted a tray for our tea and I thought we could use one of these cookie sheets and I could quilt little topper to fit inside the tray. So that's what I did.
|I used batik scraps to sew this tea tray quilt. I rounded the corner to fit inside the tray. Go to Craftsy for my free tutorial on how to make a quilt-as-you-go table runner, similar to this.|
|Since I made this in December, I used this beautiful poinsettia fabric for the back, so that it's also reversible too. Hmm...maybe I need to make a few more in other holiday themes like Thanksgiving, Halloween, Valentine's Day, etc.|
|Here it is in use. The mug on the left my daughter gave to me one year. It's from Starbucks (where she works) and it's the New Mexico mug. My friend Bobbie gave me the pretty pink mug that says Joy on it.|
