Tom needed some place mats. Do you remember Tom? If you don’t, I’ve posted about him before.
Anyway, I made Tom place mats. Plus, I threw in some hot pads since I had leftover fabric.
The pattern is pretty easy and I’m pleased with how they turned out. They pattern said to bind them and I thought that was too much work, so I turned them instead. Turning has it’s advantages and disadvantages, too, but I definitely did not feel like hand sewing down binding, especially since I still have some left on my Madrona Road quilt. I still have to hand sew the openings shut, but that’s a lot less work.
On another note, I got some mail the other day!
My mom also took advantage of one of their deals and I had her order me a Simply Color charm back and a chevron charm pack. I’m planning on getting them when I go home next weekend. Somebody fabrics finds me…
