    Christmas Placemat

    My Christmas placemat and banner piece made for the Christmas retreat that I am going to next week. Placemat is a Crazy patch project from Anita Goodesign and it is a pieced ITH project. I have quilted in the ditch of each block after it has been joined together. The banner piece is machine embroidered appliqued and machine quilted around the design and wording.

    Beautiful work! Our guild makes placemats for Meals on Wheels every Christmas. I hope you don't mind if I borrow your design. It would work great with scraps--which we all have!

    I don't mind at all, everyone turns out differently and crazy patch is crazy patch and yes, an excellent way to use scraps as that is just what I did.]

    Betty, your 2 projects came out beautifully. I love crazy quilting. i'll be making pillows for next Christmas. I'm done with this year. the banner is so pretty too. you always pick such pretty colors. Thanks for sharing with us.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wonderful work. I especially like the placemats. I have finished sewing for a craft boutique to benefit the local crises pregnancy center. I want to make a few things for our home-I think the placemats would be a good start.

    Beautiful. The crazy quilt placemats remind me of my g'ma. She loved crazy quilts.

    Beautiful work, but I do have to ask - what is an ITH project?

    Sailor woman it means in the hoop. Betty your work is beautiful, I have wanted to purchase an embroidery machine so many times after seeing someone make a beautiful piece like the Holy Family. However my DH always says do you really need another machine? I just invested in a serger so now is probably not the time to say I want one again. Sigh!

    Sailorwoman, ITH is 'in the hoop', a term used with machine embroidery. Anita Goodesigns is a supplier of designs to use with embroidery machines.
