52 Week Challenge - Week 40

As I referenced in my Monday W.I.P. post, this week's project has been to make up a pattern and kit for a placemat set.  The kit includes everything (except thread) to make a set of four.

Kits and patterns have been a long standing idea in my head, but it has been a bit of a struggle to get this first one implemented.  I have lots more designs in mind, so hopefully the next one will be easier.

What have you been up to this week?  I would love to see what you've been working on.  You can leave a link by clicking on the tool below.  To read more about the 52 week project, click here.

Let's get busy,


  1. Curved piecing is still so scary to me. Someday I will have to give in and try it.

  2. Kits are a great idea! I've always wondered if I could sell my albums this way.

  3. What a great idea! I have admired your lovely place mats for a long time. Hope the kits sell for you.

  4. Good luck with your kits! I just recently decided to start creating patterns myself. I used to sell them to books and magazines but never myself so this will be something different. Plus, back in the day I did that, I used a typewriter!

    Enjoy putting them together. I think they are so much fun to make!
