To-Do #1

I did finish my niece’s place mats. Below is a pic with some pretty late-season cosmos flowers after I washed and air-dried the place mats. They did not shrink too much. They were 12.5″ x 18.5″ prior to being laundered and lost about 1/4″ with both width and length.

And another shot where I tried to be a little artsy with some strewn cosmos 🙂

In my September 2022 One Monthly Goal Finish post, I shared several pre-wash photos that I took on our robin blue stained picnic table. Here is one pic from that post that shows the two different fabrics from Sharon Holland’s Willow Collection that I used for the backs.

Here are the fabrics I’ve decided to use for my Mini Series Rainbow. I hope to start working on it in the next couple weeks.

  3. Those placemats are so pretty – the cosmos compliment them so well! Can’t wait to see Break of Day!


  4. The placemats look wonderful after their first wash, and the late season cosmos compliment them beautifully, too! Enjoy getting to finish your Break of Day quilt this week; I find binding one of the most satisfying steps of quilting and hope you enjoy those final moments in creating the quilt.


  5. Love those placemats!


  6. Your niece’s placemats are beautiful! Looks like you had fun finding different places to photograph them, too. Pretty rainbow of scraps, too!
