JP’s Placemat

With the start of a new year, it seemed appropriate to stretch my wings and try something new – this blog.  I am fairly organized so I have pictures of my finished quilts, but I wanted a record of the journey.  So good or bad or wow or ho hum, this will be that record.

I will be visiting one of my grandsons (age three) in a couple of weeks and he needs something special from Grandma.

This was the inspiration for the project.  Do you notice the middle block at the top?  The plan is to make a placemat for my grandson using the paper pieced block and the Word Play book for his name.  Here is today’s progress:

JP has blonde hair and blue eyes, so his placemat needed to match.  I am hoping to get this finished in the next couple of days so that I can start something for his little sister.

    Too cute! And it looks just like him because his hair sticks up just like that!
