 These are the easy place mats that my quilt group was making last winter.  They are  made with four fat quarters and 5/8 yard of fabric for the backing.  These are made using the "quick turn" method - no binding.  They are quick to complete when you need a gift in a hurry!

I used some built-in specialty stitches on my Pfaff for the quilting.  I stitched using Superior King Tut thread in a variegated pastel colour #937.

I've also been working on my redwork quilt.  I decided to take the easy road and make pieced sashing with nine-patch cornerstones.  I'll get back at it soon.

My BFF is on vacation this week, so we are heading across the border to visit Watertown NY for some shopping and a nice lunch out.  We're bringing both DHs along too!

I'll be adding some recipes that have been requested, later this week.
See what creativity is happening at Judy's blog!


  1. cute, I need to check out that method for making placemats, I love it!

  2. Love nice easy projects to try out stitches on our sewing machines!

  3. That specialty stitch looks so cool on that one block - makes it look like you fringed it somehow.

  4. these look great. Good use of the deco stitches on your machine too...


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
