This week in Arts & Charms class, we had this GREAT quilt pattern
The directions at the Crafty Quilter says the finished size is 51X51"
I decided that this week, I would use the pattern to create four placemats
First, I picked out my fabric from my scrap pile and cut out the pieces
Next, I sewed them together with a lot of thinking time in between stitches.
While I lost the coolness of the dangle effect of the pattern, I like the way it turned out
Here is the back of the placemat
I played around with the color combo for the next three mats...did I want yellow?
Ultimately, I decided on the red...that is just too much yellow for my tastes.
I have enough squares in each color to complete my placemats. I love the way it looks on my table. I will post a pic of my table with all four mats soon.
As promised, here are my finished placemats on my kitchen table
With my fiesta dishes
I really love the backs on my white table
I feel proud and accomplished. My Mother would be pleased with my efforts.
My mind is whirling, I could make placemats for seasons, holidays...so much fabric, so little time:)
