placemat quilt swap 2


13" x 17"
free pieced
top made with scraps from my scrapbox
machine pieced, quilted and bound

We're home from the beach! It was fun, but we're glad to be home. Nothing like your own bed, your own tap water, your own toilet (you know's it's true) and your own space (from each other). I'll try and share some pictures later on this week.

I mailed out my placemat to Kristin/knit one quilt too the Saturday we left.
Remember what I said in my last post about perfectionism? And that a few parts of the placemat were bothering me? Well, it was a couple of letters. Part of me wanted to leave them, but then my husband wisely pointed out that if I want the words to be read, I'd better change them. Good point.

Kristin and I had decide to make placemats with a fall theme, use free pieced letters and use as many scraps as we could.

Thanks Kristin! It was a fun swap!
PS blogger's being a real booger. grrrr.

Fabulous placemat! I'd leave it on the table at an empty place, because I wouldn't want to cover it!

it's marvelous. I love the pumpkins. I don't know how you guys could actually use them as placemats. Wallhangings definitely.

I love that placemat! So cute. I love the stripey legs on the crow, they make the whole thing.
