Amy & Nancy go shopping!

The fabric I've been waiting for has finally arrived! Early in the summer we ordered a line of brightly colored woven plaids from Robert Kaufman Fabrics. When I saw the samples, I thought they would be great for a set of placemats to go with my Fiesta Ware dishes. So, I've had my pattern selected and have been waiting all summer for the fabric to arrive.

I'll be using a pattern from the book "Six Halves Make a Whole" by The Quilt Branch. The pattern uses 1/2 yard each of 6 prints to make 6 placemats. The prints are mixed so each placemat turns out with a different arrangement of colors.

I was making my fabric selections at the shop today and Amy couldn't resist being drawn into the project. She selected an assortment for placemats from a brand new group of prints designed by Terry Atkinson for Red Rooster Fabrics. The group is called "Paisley Party" assortment of 24 fun, bright prints.

Here we are with our fabric selections. Watch for photos of our completed placemats!
