Wednesday again

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. 


  1. pretty! How fun to have lavender walls. This may need to happen somewhere in my house. . .

  2. WOW that is gorgeous fabric...can I ask the mfg. of it. I recently pulled some florals out in that colorway and have them sitting here for a project to appear. This fabric would work in well with them. Great project! Very elegant!

  3. Yes WOW is right, what beautiful fabric. You have put it to good use. I feel exactly the same about my current table runner WIP, I want to see it all the time because the fabric is stunning but don't have the heart to cut into it. Beautiful work Pat!
