Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Love those LakeHouse fabrics! The ones she chose work so nicely together.
And I really love the cabin roof that she pictured too. I think they're bluets that are carpeting it. Ah spring. My bluets have long since been beheaded by the lawn mower. And I don't think that hubby would appreciate me extending the gardens to the garage roof. Nope. Definitely not!
You know, to each his own.
If I made some nice looking placemats, then cut and pieced them, that differently, my family would look at me, like I was driving a freight train down a dirt road.
Trying different things, is how you do eventually come up with something great, but I can only afford to do most of my experimenting on paper. I guess that's why my productivity level is not that high.
I'm with you! I actually gasped when I saw the second picture with it cut apart!!Originally Posted by quiltncrazy
I, too, did not care for the after design. I think it ruined the look of it.
I think with a different set of fabrics it might have looked better.
Lesson learned: just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
Boy I thought I was the only one that thought it was better before she cut it. Whew... And yes I am in the same boat if I did placemats well wouldn't work.
I liked the "before" better, too.
