getting to the finish

Elinor here, looking out the window...and as always, away from the camera. She is sweet company even if she won't pose for me.
We have been working away stitching the binding on these placemats...only 3 to go. I tried the turn the backing over method but couldn't get the mitered corners the way I liked them. So I gave in to binding each of them..It's a good excuse to sit and sew by hand though.

Last photo is of the roosters on the back.
I'll be happy to finally put these birds in the mail this week!


  1. Elinor looks like a "good" helper and reminds me of my quilt inspector. lol:) The place mats are beautiful. Can hardly wait to see what you do next.

  2. your placemats are adorable. I made a very similar set for my daughter using yellows.
    I also made a kitchen towel using your same chicken fabrics.

  3. Oh, too bad the technique didn't quite work for you but they still turned out just great.
