Next we made a few place mat and runner samples from our Roundabout pattern which we will also send to QuiltSource Canada to display. We used another Lewis and Irene collection called Bear Hug, also available through QuiltSource Canada.
It was so hard to just pick a few fabric combinations as they all mixed and matched so well!
While at the retreat Lori and I taught a class making our Roundabout pattern. Students could chose to make a place mat or elongated runner in the class and it was fun to see all the different fabrics chosen for the project. We even had a young quilter in our class and she did a fantastic job on her placemat! Feels good to help the younger generation get starting in quilting!
