I have an April finish!
I started these placemats last summer. The fabrics are all sunprints done with lace. I showed the sunprinted fabric here and here. I learned that sunprinting doesn’t work great with lighter colors but I wanted to use all the lace prints in a project and decided on placemats. They wound up as a UFO because I’m not totally happy with how I decided to use the fabric.
I’m glad I’m tracking UFO projects this year because it helped me look at these again, accept what I don’t like about them and remind myself that they are just placemats that will be soiled with food so I could finish them.
My favorite part of this project are the napkins. This one is printed with curtain lace from my Grandma Dove’s house.
Here are all 6 napkins. I think they will make for a very festive table.
The best part is that they look great with the new glasses that I bough in Staunton at the Glass Festival this weekend!
