Ok, well I may be a glutton for the sewing machine, but I am going to try to do a few more swaps this year. I really do enjoy doing them. And well, I am also thinking sometimes they will be perfect gifts for my presents box.
So, January 1 and I signed up with the Facebook - Placemat Quilting Swap.
I am required to make 6 placemats 18 inches x 12 inches out of a particular colour way
Violet/purple - Jacqui
Indigo/blue - Sonia
|my colour inspiration image....loving this one.|
Green - Kerry
Yellow - Elizabeth
Orange - Elizabeth
Red - Sonia
|my colour inspiration|
Come March, I will receive ... yes you can see my name twice. I will receive two sets of 6 rainbow
placemats. One to keep and one to give as a gift I am thinking.
It was more the beautiful Moda Vintage Modern fabric I think that drew me in, as it's what I used recently when I designed my Chevron Runner Pattern.
Not bad for one days work....and then after spending time blogging and surfing for inspiration again.....for my blue mats, instead of stitching.....
I really liked the different sized strips of this one,
and thought I use that inspiration with my colour selection below and use the quilt as you go method to create my indigo/blue place mats...so I am off to cut and stitch with what's left of the afternoon/evening
Be back soon with some finished items pictures....
