I love fun swaps! A few weeks ago, Amber threw out an idea on Instagram for a placemat swap. She called it the placemat project. The idea was that each participant would share what colors/style of fabric placemats she would like to receive. Each of us received four names and preferences to make placemats for over the summer. Every few weeks we would mail one out. The placemats are all the same size (12x18 inches). By the end of summer, we will each have received four different, but coordinating placemats from four different people! Fun! I knew I wanted to play along.
My first 2 placemats have been sent & received so I can share them with you now. Placemat #1 went off to Tsoniki who lives overseas. I was so nervous until I knew she had received it! She requested mostly yellow with some red. I had fun learning to sew 60 degree triangles on her placemat!
I received my first placemat from Hannah and it blew me away! She says this was her very first time doing paper piecing. WOW!
