Quilted Dish Mats

What happens when you add Liberated Quiltmaking II to Scraps & Shirttails and then multiply the answer by Hippos and Dinosaurs?  You get two liberated log cabin dish mats made from thrifted shirts!  I'm not sure that this project is exactly what Gwen Marston or Bonnie Hunter had in mind when they wrote their books, but I'm very happy with what happened when I paired the two together!

I looked at thrift for some usable shirts for a project but did not find any.
Now in DH's closet I could...humm...wonder if he would miss them!! hahaha!

I love playing around like that and using thrifted anything for doing it. What did you use for a filler on the dish mats?
