Do you ever find a fabric you love, but aren’t sure you need another quilt? Or, did you spy some great fabric on sale for Halloween, but don’t need another quilt? Are you tired of bringing a bottle of wine to a dinner party and want something more personal? This is the answer!
I love making these napkins. You will too – the hardest part is prepping the fabric. I made two sets of 4 napkins the other day. It took two hours of sewing time…not bad right! I use napkins like this every day, and they last forever!
This was my porch on Saturday. We have a great thing called an art walk on the island, 3 or 4 times a year. This was the first one I participated in this summer, due to my darned ankle.
I was determined to have a few new things to show, and I did. I loved these picnic napkins in the watermelon and sky blue (they didn’t sell). I knew the blue lobster ones would, and regret not having more of that fabric. I bought the fabric at a show in April, for this purpose and was glad to finish them. There will be a tutorial at the end of the month on how to make them, so simple for great housewarming gifts. They are 17″ square when finished, no fancy seaming, just turned inside out, and then pressed and sewn around the edges.
The good news is that I do have a little stash of scraps. Who knows what kind of table topper might appear for the next sale?
One Monthly Goal
It is time for me to finish this quilt! It needs binding; which is cut but not sewn together and a proper label. It will be delivered to its owner in early October so it is time to get back to it. When it’s done there will be a longer blog post on it, but this blog post has a little information on it.
