Scattered colours placemats and Monday Makers!#40

Hiya all!
Can't believe it is the 40th week of Monday Makers! Where is time going?? My son is turning three this Thursday. I love watching him grow into a beautiful boy but I also want to stop the time. Can't I just keep him at this age? Pretty please???...

You might remember that a while ago I started making some placemats to match with my scattered colours table runner. I finished them almost ten days ago but only today I had a chance to take proper pictures.
Here they are:
 I really like how they turned out and compliment the runner.
A photo that showed all three together would have been very nice but I could only keep the muffins away from my son for five minutes!! Only enough to set the scene for the placemats!
What do you think?
Now to Monday Makers!
Last week I asked your advice on using some fat quarters to make a quilt for my son. I took your advice and asked him if he liked the colours and he said "of course mummy!" So I went ahead and cut them and started sewing the other night.
I will try to post some progress shots during the week if I can.
Now it is your turn to share your finishes and starts with us!
1.Your project can be anything you start on that Monday as long as it makes you move and be active and creative: a new quilt, a knitting project, scrap booking, cross-stitching, baking-we don't mind yummy recipes!, a gardening project, painting your house!, tidying up the pantry!...This is your Monday and you are the maker of the day!

  1. Love your placemats and table runner. Colour palette is great and the straight line stitching provides fabulous texture! Just the style I love!!

  2. That's a great placemat/tablerunner set - I do believe I'll just pop by for a muffin if your son left any! Mine would have been on them like syrup on pancakes ... even now @ 25 and 26, LOL!

    Beautiful quilt fabrics too - I really need to get some UFO's finished so I can start on a few toddler/baby sized quilts I have fabric set aside for! I'm buying fabric faster than I'm using it - I don't think math is supposed to work that way ;)

  3. The placemats look wonderful with the table runner, and the start of the quilt for your son looks wonderful. Nice choice of calming neutral to work with those lovely prints. :)
