Did that and Done!

The placemats are done and in their baskets, I'm going to bring lunch for my staff on the 11th and hand them out then. These were fun to make and I don't know where my brain was, but I almost didn't quilt them. It finally dawned on me that they were supposed to be "quilted placemats". Sometimes I can be so slow, but eventually I catch up. Like next time I make these I won't use all of my prints and maybe space them out with some tot's or solids. Duh, then I may have had enough of the prints. I think they have a saying for this, something about hindsight. It also finally dawned on me that this was another "P" project!! What's up with that? First it was pincushions, then pumpkins and then back to the pincushions cause I didn't get them done and now placemats! I'm done with the "P's" and I'm movin on to the "Qs" but I can't say what. What I'm working on now is a gift for someone who may check my blog. So... I'm busy and staying out of trouble. The 20 placemats managed to use up about 5 yards of my stash and odd bits and leftovers of batting, so this is gonna be linked to the stashbusting!!
Oh and how cute are those napkins that I found at the dollar store... 2 for a buck?

The floss in the photo on my blog is Six Strand Sweets by Jessica. They are hand dyed, varigated flosses. I have no plans for them, I just love them!!
