Not on the list - what?!

I got a text from a girlfriend, and we are going to meet for lunch this weekend. She has a Xmas present for me. We had dinner before Thanksgiving and gave her presents to her since I knew she could use the one items for Thanksgiving. I gave her a dozen dessert plates which she had mentioned she needed some when we went on one of our road trips. I decided I needed to make her some placemats - this was not on my list of projects for this year, big surprise! LOL!!! Last night I went digging looking for fabric. Someone at work gave me the idea to use fish fabric for one side since she and her significate other go salmon fishing. They also like to travel and have been out West and Alaska. I couldn't find much in the way of fish fabric, but I did find some with deer on them and whales.
The other side will be this Jay McCaroll fabric. The placemats are all ready to be quilted.
I also cut out the binding, stitched it together, and pressed it so it is ready to go. While I was at it I cut the binding for the t-shirt quilt.
My plan is to get the placemats quilted tonight and bind them tomorrow before my friend shows up. The rest of the weekend I will work on the t-shirt quilt. Have a great weekend!

It's fun to add a small project in the lineup. I hope you get the T-shirt quilt finished over the weekend.
