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.
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!!!
I love all of my hand written recipes too - even with their stains. There are such great memories.ReplyDelete
The colors of your quilt are MY colors.
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.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
The table mat is adorable. The hand written recipe makes me smile. It is something to treasure.ReplyDelete
Love those warm browns in your table mat. Now I want snicker doodles! My Guy's are very, very good.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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!!Delete
That is very cute - I like the contrast of the light and darksReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
