SUTK Swap all done

I completed my package for my partner the other day. It took me just about all day to baste, quilt and bind all 4 of the placemats and make the FQ apron, luckily I had finished the potholder so I didn't have to make that. I was determined to finish it though so I was on a roll.

These placemats are my favorite thing I have ever made and I just might cry alittle when I mail them out to my partner. There just might be these in my future but they do take a long time to make with all the scraps you need. The placemats are 18" x 14".

They are just so cheery and bright and I think the yellow print I used as the binding is one of my favorite things.

I did free motion quilting so that it would help all the seams to lay flat and it worked perfectly.

I made these potholder/hotpads. One was for my partner and the other went to Rachel the winner in the giveaway.

Then Erin and I decided it would be funny to make our partners a FQ Apron since they have become the trademark of the group.

Additionally - we're making another one that everyone in the swap has the chance to win. Everyone that sends their package out on time (deadline is March 1st) will be entered to win another FQ Apron.

The top picture is me with the apron I made for my partner and the bottom picture is Erin's.

oh yes.  we did.  an apron & a globe.


Here is the full package that I need to get into the mail to my partner. I can't wait to see what happens once she gets them.

Oh yeah, those placemats are AWESOME! You'll just have to stitch up another set for your own table after you send those off to their lucky new owner!
