I was going to share these placemats and the bargello table runner with you today but the table runner isn't done yet. I'm working on the binding but I'm having a little issue with my right hand and hand sewing isn't fun. I'll get it done, though, and will have the grand reveal soon.
Meanwhile, I made a second project with the Sugar Maple to share. This was a relatively simple project but I really love the results.
I used 2 yards of the Sugar Maple gradient to make a set of 6 placemats. If I had made my placemats a little narrower I could have gotten a set of 8 from 2 yards of the gradient. I wrote a PDF tutorial for this project and you can get it here.
My friend, Cindy, always finds me great supplies of napkins in her thrift searches. The napkins in the photo above came from her and I dyed them to match. The brown and ivory polyester edging fits in well with the placemats.
Some of my friends like to lay claim to things I make. I'm usually happy to oblige because I like to give things to people who will love them. But I want to make clear today that I'm keeping these for myself!
