Vintage Retro, "Sweet Life" WIP

I made a table topper from Camille Roskelley's "Sweet Life" pattern, you can read about it here
The pattern can be found in Camille's book, "Simply Retro".
She gave her readers a tip:  "Sew together the triangles you trimmed from the Flying Geese to make half square triangles.  Sew these in rows to make a throw pillow top or a small quilt."
I don't know why I never thought of that before!
I only made 4 blocks for my table topper, but......
I was able to make this cute chevron place mat.

There were still half square triangles left, so I made some mug rugs.

I still have to quilt everything at an undisclosed and unknown date, but I will definately show you the finished projects!

  1. I hope to someday get half as good as you with the points and pinwheels. I'm still wonky wonky:) silly question... Is a mug rug a coaster? :)

  2. This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic
    job. I really enjoyed what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
