Olive the Ostrich Giveaway

I was lucky enough to get a Fat Quarter bundle of Laurie Wishburn upcoming line Olive the Ostrich. I thought it screamed placemats for the girls. We use placemats for every meal and the girls love them.
Olive the Ostrich Placemats
I think Gwen has claimed this one. She was very excited when I finished making them today. I used Kona Coal along with the fabric from the line on this placemat. Aren't the Ostriches cute? The girls love them.
Olive the Ostrich Placemat
This placemat was alittle busy since I used the print as sashing so I used Kona pink as binding and it matches one of the hearts perfectly. Pretty soon these placemats will be washed a million times I know it.

Now for the giveaway. Robert Kauffman & Laurie Wisbrun has sent along an extra FQ bundle so that you can play with these fun fabrics yourself. Just leave a comment and you will be entered. I will leave the giveaway open for a week until Tuesday August 28th.
