This mat is GORGEOUS and holy moly it is CUTE! So personable for the adults and the kids too! This project is from Thread Riding Hood, who call it the “Quilted Classroom Mat”. But I think it’s uses are so much more utilitarian than just for the classroom and/or just kids. I love the pattern that the blogger used; it is bright, cheerful and fun. But I think you could use other fabrics patterns and make them useful for just about any personality, gender and age. Why not use this as a yoga mat, a reading mat, a play mat, etc? It looks very comfortable, too. LOVE IT!
