I did get one place mat completed last night. Other than some puckering around the area where I stitched the opening closed, I'm pretty pleased with it. This is one of my least-favorite, design wise. I thought I was pretty smart coming up with the log cabin idea for my last piece, but the fabrics are too random, and not cohesive enough for me. It's ironic - I look at quilts and projects that are made with nicely coordinated fabric lines, and think that's not really a challenge, because all the color and design work is already done for you by professionals. But it looks good. Can you argue with good?
