I love the placemats. I have the perfect Christmas fabrics to make these.


thanks so much for all the fun things you have shown, I really enjoyed all the ideas, and one more day to go. what will the last day bring???


This is a great technique! I like the stacked corners. Simple to do, but it makes for a really interesting look. I also REALLY like the fabrics! I'm assuming they're from the new line. I like it, and will be looking for it.

I love the use of the triangles to do those diagonal lines, very clever! Thanks for the tutorial and the chance at the giveaway.

Dawn DeMulling

I love the as you go technique as I don't own a quilting machine! thanks!

Paula Hjelle

wow! just got the address for this today blog hop today! what fun! I have a week of catching up to do!!


I am a newbie to this "blogging stuff" ....
anyhow, each day I search for the comment site for each designer..... I have posted comments on their site, or is Gudruns site the official posting site??? I sure want to get my "hat" in the ring for the grand prize. That would be terrific. I have learned many new ideas. I have sewn for many years, but not to the extent that I do now. My daughter rekindled my passion for quilting again. I think that session in Rogers should be attended by this old novice. Virginia

Carol Radcliffe

Thank you for the tutorial. Although my placemat came out crooked, I will try again.

Sherri Osborn

Love this pattern and have others of your too! Thanks.

Darly Dulion
