Since my last post, I've done a lot of things. I went on a quilt shop hop in April with a friend. I stayed within my budget. Boy was I happy about that. We saw some gorgeous fabrics and some fantastic quilts. I picked up a few books and patterns, but very little fabric. Everything came home in the same tote bag as the binder that collected the free patterns from each shop.
In May, I went to visit my Mom for Mother's Day. We had a fantastic time. We went out for dinner and we talked about all kinds of different subjects. Going to have to do it again - we had so much fun. I also took a workshop through my local quilt guild. I think I have a picture of that quilt. Not the best of pictures, but it will give you an idea.
These are fun little place mats to make and while the colors are not ones I would choose, they do make for fun little projects. I would love to make a matched set but I have to figure out that would work. Maybe I'll just have to try it some day. Would have to pull my fabric scraps and see what I get. So here are are couple more for you to look at.
This one has a bit more pizazz, I think, than the previous one. I'd like to make a few more like it, but the kits come from our community service and they don't always have any two alike.
I'm off to find a cool spot under the air conditioner. Will write more later.
