SewCalGal's Christmas Quilt Show 2010

It's time for another blog hop (with fun prizes), this time at SewCalGal's blog. Her Christmas hop last year was enjoyable.
I have a little double-sided wall hanging (13"x13") that's a wannabe table mat so I had some fun over the weekend and tried out three options for usage. I made it two or three years ago and just love the color combination. The floral was my jump off fabric and then I picked out a few fat quarters from my collection and played till I was happy with the combination. I did traditional 9 patch blocks on the front and free formed the back.



Option #1 probably won't happen since we hang our stockings on the mantel.
Option #2 looks great under my prayer plant and picks up the colors from the leaves.
Option #3 is where it sits at the moment till I get ready for Christmas :)

Before I forget here's the back of my "mat". I might add more stitching but I'm in no rush to do so.
So hop on over to http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com or click on the BIG button on my sidebar and join in the fun.

It does look good under the prayer plant, but you can't see it, I like the hanging off the mantle, maybe the stocking will make room for it.

I love seeing these little table mats (quilts) around the house. They bring a warmth and coziness to an area.
