I have been visiting in Minnesota with one of my favorite friends and quilters Brooke for this past few days.  Working on someone else's projects is such a nice break from your own.  Brooke has an order from her sister-in-law for 25 mini placements to give her co-workers at Christmas time.  Yes, I know Christmas is months and months away, but we thought to get started. 
I love to fussy cut various fabric prints when they lend themselves to a fun project.  
And this Into The Deep fabric was a perfect one to do it with.
These little mini placemats are 8.5 by 11 inches.  So cute!
While here we also were able to take road trips to two wonderful quilt stores.  I snapped this photo of this cute three fabric table runner to try at home.
 One can make it easily wider or longer as desired.  Sometimes finding a pattern that only uses two or three fabrics is a challenge.  This one works so well.
Yes I did do a good deal of shopping while here.  I'll give a peek on Friday's Blog of that shopping spree.


  1. thanks so much for coming and visiting!!

  2. I love that fabric in the mini placemats. It's really fun and the pattern of that quilt is gorgeous as well.

  3. It's never to early to start on Christmas projects. Nice fabric for the project.

  4. Mmmm...I do like that table runner! That daisy print is so Summery! Yes...I agree...in-store shopping is much more fun than online...I've been getting to stores more often recently...and only buying online what my area does not sell.

  5. Glad you were able to find time to sew with your friend thats such a special time. Love the materials in the table runner. Have a safe trip home Cheers Glenda Australia.

  6. Those mini placemats are so cute! What a fun time with your bestie!
