The London Friendship Quilters Guild met this week. Every year at this time, each member of the guild makes placemats to donate to Meals on Wheels. The placemats are given to shut ins along with their Christmas dinner which is delivered on Christmas Day. A representative from Meals on Wheels attends our December meeting to receive the placemats. The people who receive them each year are very grateful and pleased to have a homemade gift along with their meal. This week, I made two placemats to donate. I found a charm pack in my stash and used the squares to make hour glass units.
I ran out of the lighter squares so the second placemat has some solid squares in it.
I quilted both placemats on my DSM and used some solids from my stash for the binding.
On the backs, I used some Christmas fabrics, also from my stash.
Here is a close up of the quilting on one of the placemats.
Here are both placemats:
I also worked on my Counted Cross Stitch snowman picture, adding some more snow and outlining.
There is still lots more outlining to do, but progress is being made.
I hope to do some more outlining tomorrow, during slow Sunday stitching time with Kathy.
