Day 214/365: Set of 3 Quilted Placemats, Completed

8.2.2015

We got back to Morro Bay this afternoon and I finished sewing the binding to the third placemat in the set of three that I’d been making for my cousin.

Here is a view of their backsides:

This was a fun little project and a good way to use up scrap fabric.  I’ve been enjoying the sewing and quilting process.  Now I’m thinking of sewing more napkins or making a quilted table runner.

Day 200/365: Nine-Patch Quilt Blocks

It rained last night and all morning.  Given California’s current drought, this was a big deal.  I stayed inside most of the day and sewed nine-patch quilt blocks.  It was very satisfying to go through the stacks of 4.5″ squares that I’d cut several months ago, play with combinations of colors and patterns, and piece together these colorful arrangements.  I’m thinking about making more placemats, maybe a couple of table runners, or even a small quilt.  In the meantime, aren’t they pretty?
