Here's what Vicki had to say about her Mineral Pool placemats tutorial: There are two things that I have been wanting to do: make some samples using my hand dyed fabrics and make more placemats. I have a million placemat ideas but I wanted to go back to these that I made during Craft Week and write up a tutorial. Since I wasn't able to make soap yesterday (missing an ingredient) I decided that I needed to do the placemat tutorial and I selected the Mineral Pool palette because these colors will look fantastic in my kitchen.

Here's what Vicki had to say about her Sugar Maple placemats tutorial: I was going to share these placemats and the bargello table runner with you today but the table runner isn't done yet. I'm working on the binding but I'm having a little issue with my right hand and hand sewing isn't fun. I'll get it done, though, and will have the grand reveal soon.

Meanwhile, I made a second project with the Sugar Maple to share. This was a relatively simple project but I really love the results.

Here's what Vicki had to say about her fat quarter placemats tutorial: I wanted to make some fast placemats using fat quarters. These fat quarters are sunprinted fabrics but they work with any sets of fat quarters.

Here's what Vicki had to say about her Merry Mats placemats tutorial: This placemat tutorial was designed specifically to be used with my Geranium hand dyed gradient fabric but the placemats can be made from any fabric you choose. These placemats finish at 17” x 13” but you can adjust the size to your own preference.
