I fell in love….. with some wild fabric I found at Cozy Creative Center and just had to buy some. I really did not need to start another project, but I could not resist it. I really, really love this fabric. At Cozy they had stretched a piece around a painter’s canvas and it looked stunning on the wall. What a great, quick and easy decorating idea, except that I really did not have any free wall space. So I made placemats instead.

One finished:placemat 1Seven more to go:

placemat 2

And then I’ll have 8 reversible placemats, all slightly different.

A Bernina binding foot would have really helped, but I was so impatient at starting them that I did not think it through, so all the binding will have to be sewn by hand to the back. Another example of “what was I thinking!”.

Do you have impulsive ideas like that?  I do hope I am not alone when I think I can do something quickly in between some other projects and then realize it will take much longer than I had anticipated.  Oh well, at least I don’t know what boredom is.

If you like my blog, won’t you please recommend it to a friend or send it on to someone else? I would love to get some more subscribers. Also, if you have any questions, comments, or recommendations for other quilt or craft related blogs that you like, please let me know.
