Janice's Play Mat and A Work in Progress

 It all started with a brief conversation with Janice, after a purchase "what are you going to do with that?"
 " I am going to back it with laminated fabric for a playmat for my new grandchild"
Brilliant idea l thought  so off l went with Janices' idea.
A piece of cute kids panel, add some dots to make it a bit bigger, use some batting, quilt naively with 2 colours of cotton perle.
 Asphixiate yourself with quilt basting spray, to attach your laminated fabric and then bind with pre-made binding.  All up the job was quick and easy and again a great present for the little ones in our lives, as it folds up quite nicely as the laminate is just beautiful quality, it makes a great floor mat or change mat.......thanks Janice.......what a ripper.......sample in the shop tomorrow........
 Some new treats from A Day in the Country arrived  more brights in spots and stripes and the matching binding ( heaps of different colours) available
And l managed also to get Jodie's Work in Progress bag finished, l am very impressed with the size as it is quite useful not just" a pretty bag".  The Linen worked out really well as did the Bag Batting, fairly quick to make and of course Jodie always manages to get the instructions correct.

The kids panel, dotty fabric,laminated fabric, Jodies pattern A Work in Progress, Bag Batting, Linen, Binding are all available at the shop..........

Cheers Mary
