. . . . . . Enjoying the journey of quilting

Well I am back and with a finish!

A little shopping in my fabric scraps and stash and voila place mats that brighten up my table. I used fabric swatches from my window treatments to pick similar colors for the place mats. Match pretty good - wouldn't you say?

I began making these back in March but work took over my life for a couple of months. Last evening I finished up the binding -  lime green that matches the backside of the place mats. More about them here.

So good to have finished a project and finding a bit of time to sew again!

Now I can show them off a bit since I have several groups of visitors, family and business, coming to my home in early June. Well my table is looking good, but now I have to get this house of mine cleaned. As you know quilters prioritize making quilts over house cleaning.

Today I pressure washed my front porch, sidewalk and driveway. If you  had seen me I am sure you would have grinned seeing me covered in red clay dirt splattered all over me. 

Once the visitors are gone and business slows down I will be finishing up my Star Light Star Bright Quilt another unfinished project just waiting for me on my quilting table to be completed. Now it is your turn.

Joanie’s Trendy QuiltsAny May finishes bloomers?
