Dragon's Labyrinth - Days of Yore

 The Days of Yore fabrics are bright and colorful and come in light and dark colorways.  This is the Dragon's Labyrinth Bedrunner & Sham by Whistlepig Creek Productions.

Woodland Table Runner

This runner would look great on a table or a bed.  It's from the pattern "Woodland Table Set" by Jean Boyd.  Size 24 1/2" x 75 1/2"

As You Like It

There's a new pattern from Designs to Share with You called "As You Like It".  It contains instructions for three placemats.  Shown here are Style II - Vertical Border and Style I - Horizontal Border.  The third is Style III - Border Frame.  Each place mat finishs at 13" x 17" so you could make a variety of co-ordinating ones for your table.

Border Print Placemat with Prairie Point Embellishments!

 One day while on the Timeless Treasures website under Projects...More Quilts... I discovered the Border Print Place Mats designed by Valerie Morton.  I contacted her and bought the pattern - I could barely wait for it to arrive.  It came about an hour before I was headed to the ferry but I first made one with green prairie points before I left.  I then decided maybe I'd like the prairie points to be different colors on each placemat which led to the other three. The main fabric is the Marblehead Rose line.

I also made this set of placemats with four different colors.  I debated putting one pairie point of each color on each placemat - maybe next time.  The main fabric is Flower Doodle by Kim Schaefer for Andover Fabrics. 

Stonehenge Ginko

I love the Stonehenge fabrics and I especially love the ginko leaves in silver on this one.  I quilted three large ginko leaves in the center.  The pattern is Centerfold by Pieced Tree Patterns.  Size 11 3/4" x 41"

Ladybug Tea Cozy

Nine Patch Variation

Tree Place Mats

I loved the tree fabric and made these placemats.  I changed the placement of the main fabric so when they're on the table there will be an illusion of movement from the place to place.  I also just found some dishes at Wal-Mart which will coordinate beautifully.
