I love my mama. I love my mama enough to work with fabrics with which I...wouldn't normally work. She recently celebrated her one year wedding anniversary with this dude that I think is pretty freakin' cool. I had promised them some placemats, and I am happy to report that these are done!
Last year (ish?) I made them some pillow covers, and I also made my mama a quilt. These objects hold places of pride in their home. I mean, my mama and her husband are serious about their quilted goodness. I am trying to convince my mama that she can use the quilt, not just look at it. I am making headway...slowly.
When I said I would make them these placemats, the condition was that they had to use them...we'll see.
The fabrics came from a huge box o' goodness that my friend Lori gifted to me. She was moving and getting rid of her stash, and these conveniently match the requested color scheme. (It was super convenient as my stash is a little delinquent in this type of fabric.)
This is finish #1 from my Q3 FAL list. WOO! Back to work!
