What a busy week!
I have been reading so many great postings
from "For the Boys"
, got sooo many GREAT
ideas, met new quilting friends.
So, I want to give a big THANK YOU to AMY and MADAME SAMM
, I went on a Field Trip on Wednesday with my Quilt Guild. We went Quilt shop hopping
. It was soooo
much fun. Then ate at this great place called "Patty's" located in "Land between the Lakes" in Kentucky. Oh what fun.
I have also been busy making items for Christmas, including these place mats. They are sooo easy to make.
You will need:
4 stirips of Christmas Fabric 4" X 18"
4 panels of white or off white 10 1/2" X 18"
Sew the two pieces together
Then draw your applique, anything you want.
You can even fussy cut a design out of one of your fabrics.
Place the applique onto the place mat, anywhere you want
Applique by machine however you wish.
Then layer them and quilt as desired.
I also machine quilted a coordinating color binding on by machine.
You can put anything on them. Design them anyway you want.
Sometimes I embellish them with fabric paint, embroidery, sometimes I add buttons.
Just have fun with them.
Here are a few more sets that I have made:
Like I said...I have been having fun all week.
Next is to start making my Christmas gifts. This week I got all kinds of ideas.
Before I start my next project, I want to announce my winner to my two great pattern that I had on my "For the Boys" Post.
