My first quilt commission.....4 placemats with the theme, BIRDS

As I created this silly Happy Birthday place mat for Missy pictured in the banner, I began to think, I want to create for people's homes for a conversation piece or a fun way to start the day while eating breakfast. A dear friend of mine, Jess, has asked that I make 4 place mats for her new home. She is zanier than me and my mind is a whirl with ideas!!!!!!! Roxy is loving the idea because she and I have fallen in love with the small project. Off to shop in Bellevue for some cheeky fabric I am hoping!

May your TOOsday have TOO much of something wonderFULL!

Ms. Green Fairy, I miss you too!!!!!!!!!!!!! I of course think of your often and was especially remembering our lunches as I quilted this recent silly piece. I keep cheating by doing outlining and hope that you will continue to inspire me to be more daring as I miss you!
