Thank you so much for the astonishingly beautiful fabrics. I have been shopping your daily specials and am, so thrilled with the bargains that I have received this month I just had to write and say THANK YOU!! They show very well on your site which is a big help in deciding what to buy. And your shipping--I am still surprised when the mailman rings the bell and the box of beautiful fabrics is on my doorstep so quickly. You have definitely won my loyalty.

Herringbone Placemat Pattern by Carolyn Friedlander
With the Herringbone placemat, I have rescaled my original Herringbone runner pattern to the size of a placemat. The Herringbone design is a fresh take on a classic, with crisp, contrasting pieces and a pleasing symmetry. Because it works well with a range of colors and prints, especially solids, it is easily tailored to the colors and themes in any kitchen or dining room. The pattern also includes illustrated instructions for making cloth napkin rings.
Project size: 12½″ x 18″ (each)
Techniques: beginner paper / foundation piecing, basic piecing
Pre-cut friendly: can use 2½″ strips
Pattern extras: bonus directions to make cloth napkin rings, how-to instructions with illustrations, suggested quilting diagrams.
