This week my works in progress are some place mats. A recent visit to my mother-in-law reminded me that it's been some time since I made some for her (a usual annual gift). A recent sort through some fabric found 4 small panel pieces that I thought would suit the purpose, being garden themed. So I framed each suitably and then figured out how to put some pin wheels or four patches around them.

The quilting was fun too, doing some swirls on one, trying some triangles (much practice required) and some daisies on the pin wheels. 

I still need to complete the binding on one and do quilting on the last one. They've been fun to do and I was pleased to have fabric in my stash that co-ordinated well with the central panels. I hope she likes them!
Until next time,

  1. You chose framing fabrics so perfectly for the centers! Love the poppy one especially.

  2. They turned out just so sweet! I'm sure she'll love them.

  3. Lovely placemats. The panels are adorable and your borders finished them perfectly.

  4. Those are so pretty, Lynn! You've got a lucky mother-in-law! Whoop whoop!!
