First time quilter

Do you remember this post - Tropical tote for teacher.  And inside were her gifts I made.  This is also one of the gifts I want to share with you today.  Keep in mind, this was my first time tryng to quilt, so a small project was just perfect to try.

Her and I had similiar tastes so knowing her favorite color was blue, it was easy to work with.  There are four placemats and a heart-shaped oven mitt. 

If you clik on the picture, you might even be able to see the silver within the print.  I just love the fabric - so springy and cheery. The pattern was a lot of fun to do too.  Need some of these for me now.

A close up of the "mitt".  Me being the perfectionist that I am struggled a little with the bias.  Made my own from the co-ordinating fabric and trying to sew it with no wrinkles or folds was so hard.  But I got it as close as I could and Mrs. P loved them.

For those that want to know, the fabric is from Linda's Quilt Shoppe.  They have gotten the largest and best (for local) selection of quilting cottons.  I believe the pattern is also from there. Go check them out and tell them I said hi:)

Just wanted to add as well, that I will be posting my Retired Stamp Sets I will be finally getting rid of.  Four years now with Stampin' Up! and I have yet to sell any retired sets, it is so overdue:)  My hubby is threatening to move me out of the house and into the garage!  I have too many that I'm not using, some have never seen ink.  Keep your eyes open and I will let you know as soon as they are up.
