I finished all four summer placemats.
I'm really pleased! They're very cheery!
The checked binding really did the trick,
don't you think?
I did the quilting with red, green
and white variegated thread.
And then while all my red scraps were out,
I made this cute little patriotic table top quilt.
Do you remember the little Happy Jack
I made for Halloween last year?
I've wanted to make other little quilts to fit in that frame ever since. I found this little quilt in the Quilts and More magazine from the summer of 2006. It was not supposed to be a stand-alone mini-quilt, but was designed as a button-on pillow cover.
But it was the perfect 12 1/2" size for the stand.
I'm thinkin' I'm ready for summer now!
So why the heck am I still teaching at school????
