Little Quaker Christmas Cross Stitch

I have been enjoying Susan Ache’s Collecting Colors SAL that I went searching for any other patterns that she might have. I came across this Little Quaker Christmas and I soon had it stitched up.

This is the perfect sort of project for stitching in the evenings in front of the TV while we stay socially distanced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Christmas String Placemats.

I am on a mission to work through my Christmas scraps by making some placemats.

These string blocks were pieced and trimmed to 7.5 inches square before sewing 6 of them together to make a placemat.

I like my place mats on the larger size so there is room for the plate, cutlery, and glass without the glass having to sit on the edge of the placemat. This placemat finished at 14.5″ x 21 inches.

Ready for Christmas dinner!
