Thanks for all of the entries! Sometimes I wish that I could give a bit of fabric to all of you but with 963 of you commenting, I’d be left with no fabric!

The random number generator has spoken and the winner is: Number 331!

Kristin – congrats and keep an eye out for an email from me!! Thanks for joining in everyone!

Happy Monday! It’s Sew, Mama, Sew’s Giveaway Day so I thought I’d join in!

Holiday Fat Quarter Pack

How about a little fat quarter pack of festive fabrics?

Leave me a comment and I’ll use the random number generator to pick a winner on the 17th. I’ll happily ship internationally.

Good luck!

Placemats!

I finished up the placemats that I made for the LAMQG holiday swap. Chris got them last night and she loved them!  She had asked for something for her kitchen with blues, neutrals and a vaguely beachy vibe.

Place Mats

They are so simple and quick to sew up.  I used linen for the background fabric, Konas Teal and Coal and the light blue is a Moda Crossweave.

Corners

Corners!

The simple dense straight line quilting makes them lie nice and flat.

Quilting

I’ll post a little pattern for these later this week. They would make a great Christmas gift for a friend!

In the sewing room…

I’m working on my holiday swap for the LAMQG meeting on Monday evening. We all picked names so we’re making something for a specific person. It really makes for a great swap when you know the recipient…

Swap Peek

Just a peek for now! More on that soon.

And check out the blocks that I’ve gotten back for Bee Imaginative.

Bee Blocks

Pretty great, right? I can’t wait to put this quilt together once I get all of the blocks… it’s going to be a good one!
