I have been crazy busy! When I’m not making placemat samples, I am thinking about them. I have a potential wholesale customer and I am trying to come up with a design that is appealing to them. When I look at fabric, I try to envision it in a placemat. After a long conversation with the potential customer today, I have a better understanding of the desired aesthetic (listen to me, I sound like I’m on Project Runway!). I am now back to the drawing board. The design (with the inside border) is a go, it is just the fabric I need tweak. I thought you might like to see the samples so far. This was a placemat I shared in an earlier post. It is made with Amy Butler Belle collection. I changed out the button to something more interesting.
Lastly I made a different design with the fabric I purchased at Quilt Fest Jax, designed by Kim Shaefer for Andover Fabrics.
So what do you have in progress? I am linking up with the WIP Wednesday blog post over at Freshly Pieced. So don’t forget to check out what some of the other bloggers have posted, and remember, they all love comments!
