More squirrels have hijacked me!!

Wow I have been tortured encouraged by the squirrels again.  Not once, not twice, not three times but four times this month!  And three of those were in the last three days!!   These were all DrEAMi projects,  Drop Everything And Make It.

The first squirrel of the month was in the form of dragonflies that you can see HERE.

These are squirrel number two.
.

My good friend Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts started it when she showed her cute round placemats HERE.  My fingers couldn't get to the site fast enough to purchase the pattern.  Thankfully it was a download so I could read it and plan right away.  Thank you Wendy! The pattern is from s.o.t.a.k handmade.  I thought some gray and red ones would go with a snowman table runner.



They were so fun to make and then enter squirrel number three saying 'you gotta make round patriotic placemats to go with the patriotic table runners'.  Sure why not I thought! 




And in walks squirrel number four, geesh my brain is working overtime, LOL.  The wedges in the round placemats made me think of citrus fruits and we happened to be eating oranges lately.  So you following me here...hmmm why not make citrus placemats and make them oval and have the fruit wedges at one end.  


I pieced the white and print together, quilted them and then appliqued on the lemon wedges.  The perfect backing from the stash;)


All ready for a summer picnic!  That is if the squirrels stay away long enough. They are already looking in my window and whispering limes and oranges.  And maybe, just maybe, the oranges will get made yet this month.  I have begun listing these in my Etsy shop.


I hope you have enjoyed my DrEAMi squirrel adventures this month!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Linking with Sandra for DrEAMi and MCM

  6. Holy Moly Vicki!! First of all, these are all CUTE with a big capital c.u.t.e. And where the heck did you get such cute plates?!! I just adore the polka dot ones, and the gingham checked on is just perfect for a picnic. Anyhoo - back to quilting. The citrus-inspired mat is just adorbs and reminds me of a lemon. These are all so stinky fun I can't stand it. Boom! ~smile~ Roseanne P.S. Going shopping for some cute plates now!

  8. I was tempted by Wendy's place mats, too! But clearly the squirrel virus got ahold of you and wouldn't let go. These are so great and very eye catching. They are going to FLY out of your store!

  9. Well, they must have been good squirrels :-) Your placemats are all wonderful! Creative and inspiring! and I would follow the parade but I'm finally getting to a t shirt quilt I need to make fast. But maybe after that...

  13. I love every one of your spontaneous projects. That feeling, when you do WHAT you want to do WHEN you want to do it gives such great satisfaction. Especially when you complete it! My squirrels are burp cloths and pillowcases and Moda designer Stacy Hsu dolls. I also like that you photograph your completed projects as if in use with dishes, etc. Who cannot adore red and white and blue today, Memorial Day?

  14. Making citrus coasters has been on my 'to do' list for several years now. Maybe I'll make some placemats to go with them.
