Join me as I show you how to make this quick and easy placemat here!
And on a more personal note, I have answered some questions so that you can get to know me a little better, since the goal is to "get acquainted!"
Q u e s t i o n s a n d A n s w e r sQ: How long have you been quilting?
A: It's been about 3 years
Q: Do you have any favorite quilting tips?
A: Press, press, press!
Q: Do you have any favorite blogging tips?
A: Try to include a link to a past post in every new post.
Q: What is your favorite fabric?
A: I have so many. I love Kona Solids, Pezzy Print, Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets, and Metro Living Circles.
Q: What is your favorite craft book?
A: I refer to The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman the most.
Q: What is your favorite children's book?
A: I have always loved Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
A: My 60mm Olfa rotary cutter. It cuts so smooth and I can't imagine cutting fabric without it.
Q: What is your favorite music to listen to while quilting?
A: That answer really depends on what day you ask me. I am a fan of Luke Bryan, Nickelback, Jason Aldean, 80's, Hip-Hop, R&B and Talk Radio. I do have a television in my sewing room and it is quite comfortable with any channel that is playing Law and Order.
Q: What is your favorite TV to watch while hand stitching?
A: I really enjoy The Good Wife, Celebrity Apprentice, 20/20, What Would You Do?, Shark Tank and The Big Bang Theory.
Q: What are your thoughts on binding? Hand or Machine?
A: I was taught to do hand binding and I enjoy the handiwork and the finished product. Lately though I have seen some really nice machine bindings and some even use zig zag stitches. Hand stitching is where I am most comfortable, but I don't frown upon machine binding. As a matter of fact, this placemat is the first time I have done it.
