Just quickly letting you know that the blue tablemats are coming along well.

I've done seven now  - tops only but only one more and the table runner to go......

...then I can sandwich them together with the backs and some wadding.
I'm very pleased with them so far and they have been fun to do - not too difficult.
Let's hope I don't muck up the stitch-in-the-ditch quilting !

I'm thinking that the star design would lend itself to a Christmas set too.



  1. Helen, these are looking marvellous - they are going to be a great set and you are right, the star ones lend themselves well to Christmas. x

  2. They look wonderful - if you keep going they would make a lovely quilt!!!

  3. Wow! I REALLY must learn this craft!

  4. Wow! You say you think you are not patient enough to do the Dorset buttons but I would NEVER have the patience to do these!! They are really lovely and will look great on you table if you can bear to use them! The star ones would look good in red and green colourway for Christmas too.

    According to the internet our midsummer temperatures here today are the same as your midwinter ones!!
