As a quilter, I am used to getting a piece of fabric and cutting it into little pieces to sew back together again. I bought this fabric to make placemats and napkins for my dil for Christmas. I was so taken by this beautiful fabric that I was quite unable to cut it up. So I made up some yards of a mini piping in a lavendar color to match her dining room walls, and then fussy cut a coordinating stripe for each side and for the napkins. I am very happy with the results and I know that she will love them. It took a couple of days to make up 8 sets, but the work was worth it. One Christmas gift done!
All other projects are currently on hold. I am up to date with Peaceful Pathways, waiting for installment #4. I have most of Hearts Desire quilted, just have to decide how to quilt the borders. With a bit of cooler weather, we have been doing some long needed gardening, but I will get back to the sewing machine in a few days.
