a nice surprise and some works in progress...

i was going through my google reader today, checking up on some of my favorite blogs. i saw this really cute grouping of images and then realized, "hey! that looks familiar!"

thank you so much, fat quarterly for including my little red and white hexie flower in this amazing post!

now, on to works in progress. i am not really one for "the process". i tend to just sit in front of my sewing machine and just make stuff. following patterns, for the most part, kind of freaks me out. and i've never done mock-ups of things i've wanted to make before. but the idea is growing on me. especially with all the swaps i'm doing. sometimes i get a weird little idea in my head and usually i just dive right in and make it or brush it off. but this time i decided to work it out in photoshop and see what others thought of it.

so, here's my work in progress image:

the person i am making these for requested placemats, and has a very distinct and simple style that i just love. also, i am really into the idea of square placemats! i want to make tons of gigantic log cabin square placemats for every occasion now. i really hope my swap partner ends up liking them. now all i have to do is actually sew them up!
