I love these placemats so much! They are for my brother-in-law. On a recent visit, we found the Amy Butler in the destash bin at my new favorite local shop, The Little Golden Fox. After he got home he found the coordinating coral and stripe to go with, and sent them up! We talked long distance about patterns, but he left the design choice up to me. I happily found this free download which was almost exactly what I had been drawing up in my mind, I just didn't quite know how to accomplish it! Now I do! The instructions were clear and I love how they turned out! The main fabric is Paradise Garden from Amy Butler's Love collection....I will be acquiring yardage for myself, since there are next to no leftovers! Now I know why everyone loves Amy Butler! This is the first piece I've ever seen in person, and it is soooo gorgeous! I backed them with osnaburg, which I always have lots of for boys' "frontier" shirting. I must also restash my light blue pearl bracelets!
I rushed to finish the binding on these today, so I could link up with Finish It Up Friday at CrazyMomQuilts!
