I know I have been saying it each month, but now that we are into July I hope you are starting to think about those holiday projects. Start them now so you aren't so frazzled come December - and join in the challenge.
This month's project was also my Simply Small Sewing project with A Quilting Life - a cute tablemat pattern by Sherri using 2.5" squares. I used a charm pack of Field Notes by Blackbird Designs and cut those into 4ths so I could get four matching table mats. I used some scrap RJR fabrics for the side sashings and binding.
And I wanted them reversable so used a Red Rooster print (2009 - yup, cleared some stash) for the back. I think some cranberry color napkins and napkin rings will make this a nice gift set.
I was one of the month's lucky winners and got to pick from three of the wonderful Hoffman bundles (the other two go into the final give away). I chose this lovely Christmas bundle - oh it is just sparkly!! AND oh so pretty! I don't want to cut into the 12 Days of Christmas fabric - would just spoil it. So I will have to play with the complimentary pieces to make a lovely setting around that. I did say it was sparkly right - like glittery diamond dust over it all!
