Having grabbed, a couple of meters, of a beautiful gilded holly berry print, cotton fabric, in the summer sale (…and paying for it of course..lol!) I couldn’t wait to set to, on the final ideas for a couple more place mat sets for this festive season. Steadily through the year I have also been sourcing red and green fabrics too… ‘cos, believe me, when it hits September time, all the red and green gets moved from the normal craft fabrics into the considerably more expensive Christmas craft cotton section ~ shame on the store for doing that, I say!! Anyways, I’m wise to that now…but, a super tip for those just getting going in fabric craft, source your stuff early!!! 😉
Going, once again, with my favourite design of the year, ‘Skewed Squares’!! I just love doing them, they’re so simple, takes not a jot of thinking about, next to no scrapage of fabric, even after trimming as you go, AND…best of all…they are super striking, a fab burst of festive spirit for even the smallest of dining tables ;-D
Both these hand quilted sets are completely machine washable and can also be ironed, so will look as good as new year, after year….after year!!
