Lori Holt Vintage Christmas placemats

I have been making lots of placemats using 12" blocks 
from Lori Holt's Vintage Christmas book.
My Farm Girl Chick quilt group had a Christmas party, placemat exchange last week.
We each made 2 placemats to exchange, and did we ever have fun!!
I made HIS and HERS snowmen :)

I used Cotton and Steel fabric on the back.
It was difficult to part with, as I was hording it...but I bought it for this reason, so I cut into it :)

Nancy, pictured below in her Christmas leggings,
 is the Mama Hen of our Farm Girl Chick group.
She always makes everything so much fun!!!
She got some full page Christmas images 
and cut them in half in a puzzle piece.
We all reached into the bag and pulled out our puzzle piece, and looked for the fellow chick who had the matching piece.
Nancy and Diane were matches :)
Nancy is holding the placemats that Diane made and gifted to her.

Guess whose puzzle piece I matched with?
That's right, my bestie Nedra.
We were so thrilled to exchange with each other :)

Aren't all the placemats beautiful?
We have so much fun at our group, 
these women are blessings to me :)

  1. I love them all! I wish I had thought to make these from Lori's book. I will keep this in mind for next Christmas. By fact I just may do a sewing project of these in 2020. Great job on all of these placemats. Very nice!
