I really need to get back to finishing Block 3 and move on to Block 4 of Sweet Tweets, but I have decided I need a couple of new fall runners and placemats for myself.After making a pumpkin runner for my daughter with a black cat on it I decided to make one for myself. No cat on mine, our dog would be insulted if I had a cat on my runner. Yes a bit of a color swap with the grey pumpkins but that looks perfect with the wild small pumpkin print and the leaves print border had grey in it too.
And another set of place mates for our table. Of all the various ones I have made this particular pattern is the fastest and easies to make. The center is cut 10.5" square and the borders are 2.5", that makes a 14" square place mat. Add several lines of serpentine quilting and the binding that take only 2 strips of 2.5" by WOF and they are done.
My daughter was here last month and we had a wonderful time quilting together. She returned home after our visit and just this past week sent me a picture of her new baby.
