This week I will be working on a set of 6 fall color inspired placemats. About a week ago my friend looked through my fabric stash and selected the fabrics she would like to be used in the placemats. She also brought over a half yard of an additional orange yesterday, so in total I have 4 orange fabrics, 2 green fabrics, and a tan/cream/gold blender fabric to work with.
As you can see in the photo above, I have already used 2 of the colored fabrics to create the initial blocks for the placemat tops. I auditioned several design concepts with a similar color concept in EQ5 and then ran 3 of the ideas by my friends. They selected this HST design:
Doing a bit of quick math, that means I will be making 144 HSTs! Ha! That is exactly the same number as I needed to make for the September instructions for the Foothills Mystery quilt! I love coincidences like that! I will be purposefully making each placemat top unique by fabric placement. I hope to have these done for TGIFF, so I had better go get some sewing done!
