Pink and Brown Rooster
Today, while listening to the end of Sense and Sensibility and the beginning of Emilie Richards' Wedding Ring, I sewed together the pink and brown set from the Mrs. Moen Mystery. I have decided that that set will be a square table cover. I framed the squares with the pink fabric, and have made a border from four of the brown fabrics. I'll sew that on tomorrow. I have a book, Little Quilts All Through the House by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt, and Sylvia Johnson. It was published in 1993, and I think I bought it on a sale rack in JoAnn's maybe a year ago. In it I found a Sunbonnet Sue wall hanging that has a border of fabric in different size rectangles, so that is what I have followed.
The other set is probably going to be a table runner, but I was thinking I could make four funky place mats. I was even thinking of using one square for the bib on an apron, one square for a hot pad, and the other two for place mats. I think I would get the most use out of doing that. We'll see.
God Bless You.
