A Little Sewing...

This morning, we had our 2nd annual "Ladies Who Lunch" Christmas brunch. Last year, we started the tradition of giving a hand crafted gift. I drew Jill's name, and, knowing she loves anything orange, I chose this funky fabric in different orange designs.... I made her a table runner and 4 matching place mats. Here they are.

Here's the quilted runner. It's only a couple inches bigger than the place mats, but it could go over a solid tablecloth, or be used on a coffee table.

And the place mats... they look like this on the top, and are backed with dark denim. I think I might have to make myself a set of these, now, in colours that match my house.
