Friday finish - quilts and cookies

I don't use this color combo very often....
but I DO like these reproduction fabrics...don't you??
You may notice they're not ALL reproductions.
I had to sneak some other stuff in there too!

My 2 1/2" drawer is FULL
and I needed to fill a few gaps.

Scrappy=Happy

This adds to my collection of table mats
for a spring retreat auction.
My goal is 12.
I am halfway there!!!

I am LOVING these little quilts!!

The weather is warm here...
but I also did some baking.

Don't you LOVE handwritten recipes???
They are so full of memories and LOVE.

This one was given to me a few years ago by 
my friend's young daughter.
It's a sweet memory of time together!!!

I hope pinterest and all the online recipe collections
never replace these handwritten GEMS!!!

  1. I love all of my hand written recipes too - even with their stains. There are such great memories.

    The colors of your quilt are MY colors.

  2. Oh, Beth, those are gorgeous colors to me, but then, I'm a Civil War schlobbo! People will love these table mats. And I love the recipe memories, too.

  3. Love your table mat (I seem to collect a lot of browns) and might borrow your block idea. I have my gr.grans, grans, gr. aunt, and god mother's old recipe books with lots of little 'note' recipes mixed in them - just love them to death.

  5. Love those warm browns in your table mat. Now I want snicker doodles! My Guy's are very, very good.

  6. Do you have a pattern for the table mat? I have a lot of reproduction fabrics I've collected. This seems o be the perfect pattern to use it up. Dorothy.

    1. Sorry there is no pattern for this table mat. I used forty one 2 1/2" squares, Sixteen 2 1/2 x 4 1/2" flying geese units (with cream triangles) and there are four 2 1/2"x 4 1/2" cream rectangles. You could use my photo for the arrangement. Happy sewing!!

  7. That is very cute - I like the contrast of the light and darks

  8. I one hundred percent agree with you about the handwritten recipes! I use to be an avid scrapbooker before I started quilting...thus incorporated many family recipes...handwritten into my scrapbooks. Sooo glad I did!
