I want to make a Thank You gift for this couple - I'm going with the idea of a set of mats.
I chose blue fabrics to go along with the Peacock Blue theme. I sketched out a Crazy Quilt block and chose to go with a smaller mat size, which will be nice for a tea setting.
Finished size: 9"x12"
Now, as I study the Peacock feathers, the blue is a little different than the fabrics that I'm working with; I said, "Peacock Blue"... maybe the mats are a little more like a "French Blue".
... I don't think it really matters what we call them, right?!
I went a little Blue Crazy!
Originally, I stacked the fabric and cut out all the pieces at once, but then I could see that the large floral was looking really good as the center piece.
Don't worry, no fabric wasted - I'll keep the two mats for moi!
With plenty of this pretty fabric to work, and momentum... I've got several sets going.
