Table Mat

Here is a table mat I started and finished in one evening (very little sleep occurred that night!). The pattern is from an older edition of Fons and Porter magazine. This was my first "big" project with templates. It didn't go too bad, but I wouldn't want to make an entire quilt with them!I originally made it to be a gift, but I have fallen in love with it and I don't think I can give it away! Is that wrong?!?

So, I made another table mat (different pattern - picture coming soon) as the gift, but it turned out much larger than planned. That's what happens when you don't read the finished measurements!! Anywho, that one will be gifted to my Dad, and I will have to find another more suitable sized pattern for the gift! Gee darn, more sewing.....

Well I am loving it too and I don't think I could give it away either! Nothing wrong with that as far as I can tell. Thanks for signing up on my blog and I am glad to see you here. I didn't know you were here. I think there are some others here too that I don't know about yet but I have found a lot of people from the other blog.

How beautiful. It looks like a JD Shumway design. I made one just like it out of Halloween fabrics. I don't blame you for keeping it.
