PQS3 placemat for Caryn, originally uploaded by partitoymonito.

Here's the latest creation - a placemat for Caryn in the US.

I love the way it's turned out and have decided Placemats are the new Quilts! ...Quick and easy to finish and no guilt about it sitting there for months untouched.

Nice to do in this hot weather we've been having. Hand quilting is a nice winter TV watching activity for me as it warms me up as well as stop me eating! Too hot in the summer though!

Embroidery used to be my thing before the lure of the machine overtook, so it was nice to get back into that again after a short break.

I bought the binding ready made from Spotlight ages ago and like the way it looks. I just machine sewed it on, no hand sewing this time which was a nice change.

It's snoozin' in the sun with my Pretty One. I tried to get her to look up and show off the baby blues, but she was having none of it!


  1. Now you really are scaring me.......!!!!!

  2. This is just wonderful! I love the placemat-as-quilt idea ... quite inspiring!

  3. I love it! It looks awesome.... hmmmm, this might be my weekend project.

  4. Woah - that is AWESOME - I LOVE it. I've been looking for ways to make the dresden plate look good and that is IT. Genius!

  5. Wow, I love that its round, well done


Lovely to know someone out there is actually reading this!
Go on!! You know you want to...!
