Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! Although I admire heart quilts made by blogging quilters during this season, I realize that I won’t have time to make one this year. I decided instead to make a set of placemats for dear family members in Texas. I’ve been “threatening” to make something for them out of the ten gallon hat fabric for about a year. It’s perfect for placemats! Then I searched for a suitable Valentine fabric for the reverse side. Not finding what I had in mind, I purchased red and white polka dot fabric. The upside is versatility; red is great for Valentine’s Day, Fourth of July, and Christmas!
Of course I added the kids’ favorite snacks to my shipping envelope: some Valentine candies and packages of sliced pepperoni.
