Quilt Documentation # 164
This all started last winter when the quilt in this picture on someone's blog, of the Violet Craft booth at a show, caught my eye.
I must have been in a sewing/piecing mood and thought that these 5” wide quilt strips that I had won a few years back would make a wonderful King size quilt.
These fabrics and colours are not me and I just could not go any further with the quilt idea.
Then I remembered I had previously cut up a quilt for placemats before, see here.
The strips were perfect to cut into placemats. This is what they look like:
I will be taking part in a Studio Tour at the end of the month so hopefully someone might be interested.

Colour and fabric choices make such a difference. I just had a look at Violet's blog and found this quilt she made using the same pattern. I love her "Modern colour choices".
