    Moving-time gift placemats

    Our tiny town has been blessed with a great couple who own the local dry goods store. They have had an amazing assortment of "flat fold" fabrics at good prices, thus encouraging local quilters. They have also purchased and often displayed many quilts at our auctions over the years. Now they are retiring and moving to be with an elderly relative. I just had to make them place mats as a rememberance gift.
