I've been able to spend a little time in my quilt room these last couple of weeks since gardening/harvesting season is winding down.
I just finished a set of four holiday place mats to replace the old, old, worn ones I made years ago. (These old ones are so sad I didn't even use them last year.)
These new ones are nothing complicated and didn't take long to do as they were a panel from Keepsake Quilting. I cut them out, sandwiched and quilted them adding a binding of left over backing fabric . . .
. . . rather than constructing them in pillowcase fashion as suggested.
Each of the four is a little different, and I really liked the backing fabric, too. I like these place mats so much I'm considering placing another order so I have more than four of them.
Can you believe it? It's still September and I have holiday place mats made already. Maybe I have more pep and energy (I've been complaining of the lack thereof) than I think. At least for some things!
