This is the original pattern cover for the Christmas table mat I just made. The original quilt measures 39″ x 39″. My table mat measures approx. 18″ x 18″.
Here are features I want you to notice.
Tablemat is made with assorted reds and lights.
Quilt background is all ivory with high contrast with the solid dark reds.
Note the corners of the quilt. The corner connector squares in the sashing are eliminated making it appear to have a somewhat rounded corner.
The table mat has the red connector squares continued in each corner.
The pattern Live Thankfully will be available for $3.00 until December 1. That price includes postage but we would so appreciate a mailing label with your order. Just think about how much time that label saves us. Thank you in advance.
I love this little table mat/wallhanging and when time allows I’d love to make it in bright fabrics or even reproduction fabrics. The minute I laid it on the table, Heidi appeared. If you have cats then you know this is a common practice – laying down on whatever you’re working on.
I quilted it with straight lines as usual and bound it on machine. Sometime I’ll take a picture of my right hand – it’s crooked, swollen with arthritis and not a pretty picture. No more hand binding for me.
Here’s another “secret” – Connie makes all her triangle squares with Thangles and they are perfect – I don’t mean almost perfect like mine that sometimes don’t have points. Hers are flat and measure exactly what they are intended to be. I’m ok with some points missing but it’s not professional. Connie’s piecing is perfect.
I will draw out the table mat and include that sheet with the pattern so you can opt to make that size if you choose.
Have a great Thursday, Everybody! I’m heading to Java 18 for coffee and then to Junkin Gal and the library. I leave you with one more picture of Live Thankfully.
