FNwF January 2022

 Here we are at our first FNwF for 2022 with thanks to Cheryll for hosting us again this year. Hard to believe Christmas has passed by again so quick & we are in 2022 already.

My sister had a new kitchen built last year & asked me to make mats to sit in the drawers. The fabric finally arrived as Christmas so yesterday i thought i'd better shift myself & get them made as there is 17 mats to do. Well i don't know if she miscalculated the fabric amount or i did with my cutting or a combo of both but i have run short of fabric.

I got these 2 finished yesterday. They measure 80cm by 48 cm. There are 8 of this size & i have another 4 ready to quilt & 1 cut out ready to baste. That is when i discovered not enough fabric to make 1 more of the large mats & the 9 smaller mats. Fortunately i have the grey homespun in my stash but not the aqua & the white. So a trip to Spottie's is in order to find those(cross fingers). Hopefully i can get the mats done quickly & posted away so i can get back to my own projects. :)

Pop over here to see who joined in & what projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

What a fab idea to have mats in the drawers and wow, 17 drawers is my idea of storage heaven!
Enjoy your trip to Spottie. I saw on an email this morning that they have fabric on sale with good discounts.

Very good of you to make these for your sister. Great idea.

These are a very good idea Jeanette & it is kind of you to make them for your sister as I imagine they are a teeny bit boring to make?😉 I do hope you are able to get more fabric. I need to go to Spotlight too but I am leaving it as long as I can as its quite a trip for me to the city & then out the other side.

Good idea to make mats for draws…
Hope you get the fabric at Spotty but if not I’m sure you’ll came home with something?

A very productive evening. Good luck with your fabric matching.

Susan said...

Nice of you to make these - though maybe a tad boring . . .Hope you found what you needed.

I must admit I would never think to have fabric drawer liners in my kitchen....

OOPS! I hate miscalculating! Makes you sweat whether you can find more. Good luck at the store. That's very nice of you to make them up for her while your own projects sit on hold.
