I have been sewing again! A few months ago, I bought several sets of charm squares in Christmas fabrics. I was thinking about making placemats for our kitchen table. After finding a nice tablecloth at a department store, and discovering a set of placemats in our Christmas decorations boxes that we really like, I decided not to make those placemats afterall.
In stead, I am working on two patchwork quilts. The first quilt top contains two sets of Figgy Pudding charm squares.
The second quilt top consists of two sets of Crazy Eight charm squares.
Aren’t they fun? I am happy with how these turned out! I also like that both of these sets included solids in their collections, making it easier to match contrasting colors. So far, they measure 36 inches wide by 45 inches tall, which seems a little to small for an adult to use. To make them bigger and more useable, I need to shop for solid fabrics to add a couple borders. Oh darn, I need to go fabric shopping!
How nice to be working on these simple , no-pressure patchwork projects during the busy holiday season!
