More placemats but I put these as the back side of my Wine placemats. This was a panel I have had in my to do supplies for a very long time. The panel was called Follow the Sun.

I love the look of batiks and love working with them. When I saw Jenny's tutorial on the Confetti Star, I knew it would look great with an assortment of batiks. I quilted it on a long arm using a pantograph. I am very happy with the way it turned out, although I didn’t think I would ever finish hand stitching the binding.
I made this quilt to commemorate the 40th wedding anniversary of my husband and I, which is this month. Most of the fabric was from my stash, except I had to order a bit more light colored fabric and additional burgundy fabric for the backing.
I had started this quilt some time ago as a gift for my son and daughter in law. I soon realized that I wanted something bigger for them and the quilt top was packed away. A friend is doing a fund raiser for a horse rescue called Second Step Equine. It seemed like a good time to finish the quilt and find it a home while hopefully raising some money for this good cause. The quilting took a lot of time and a lot of thread so I hope someone likes it and pays for it!
I constructed a quilt with the strip method and had a bunch of 2" squares left over. I put them together to make 4-patches which grew into a 20X24" piece of fabric. I also had leftover backing and binding from other projects that had the same bright happy feel. I made this sewing mat to brighten my sister's sewing room. The pockets are a great place for glasses, seam rippers, scissors etc...
