Hello Luv Update

I am making Pat Sloan’s Hello Luv pattern as a table topper for my dining table. I have the blocks sewn together and I am deciding whether or not I’d like to add a border.

Hello Luv Pat Sloan

I had lots of bonus HST’s and I pieced them into pinwheel blocks.

Since I have two accent tables in the living room, I decided to make placemats for them.

I used a washable marker to mark a simple grid for quilting the placemats.

I used a light pink thread; it blends in well.

I’m happy with how these turned out!

  2. Hi Laura! Oh, those little pinwheels turned out so cute. What a great use for them! Much better than sitting in a stack, waiting for inspiration. You can’t help but smile at them, I’ll bet! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I’m with you, using the bonus HST’s right away is the only way to make sure they do get used! I love the placemats for the end tables. 😍

    This is a wonderful example of how a project can produce an ‘easy’ parallel project when the creator – you, Laura – is ‘on a roll’!
    The best and quickest use of HST’s I’ve seen or heard of, ever.
    And the best part? Each project looks fabulous – good job!

  7. Isn’t lovely to make items to be used and seen in your own home? I’m enjoying the cushions I made last year. Very satisfying.

    • I am not a big knick-knack collector, nor do I have storage for a lot of seasonal stuff, but I find that placemats, table toppers, cushions and wall hangings do a great job of switching things up. I hope to make more, but I do have a lot to catch up! πŸ™‚
