My granddaughter told me that when she was visiting her sister there was a really pretty quilted center piece on the table..............

This is the one I made for her 2 years ago.

 ........but they were using Halloween place mats.

I made these in 2012.

So Monday we stopped at the quilt shop and I bought this bundle.
For her birthday, I am going to make 6 place mats from the "Take Four" pattern and a table topper of some kind.

I know I am going to use the 4 fabrics on the left. From the pile on the right, I will  use the red dot fabric and one of the 2 greens on either side of it, probably the solid looking fabric.

 I am going to use this fabric on the back of 2 of the place mats for her 2 boys. I have a strip 15" x 62 left over from making pillowcases for the boys almost 2 years ago.

Hmmmm.... maybe
 I should put it on the back of 3 place mats 
(one for their Dad).
 I think I will....
 Then, if their
 cousin comes for dinner, 
Dad can give up his place mat 
and use one of the floral ones.

Love your story Ruthie! And the new placemat fabrics are so pretty. I love the color combination. Looking forward to seeing everything complete.
