The Design Studio Blog

I hope you’ve enjoyed last week’s post showing how to make a pencil case for your kids.  This week I want to show you how to make a place mat by making just a few changes to one of our table runner patterns.

I’m sure you’ve seen our great pattern  “The Sky is Falling” Table Runner by Melissa Stramel of Lilac Lane Patterns.  I really love that pattern so I decided to re-work it into a place mat.  This can be so much fun with any one of our fabric collection.  Can you imagine fussy cutting from one of our licensed brand that your kid loves?  In this How-To, I chose to feature our Happy Thoughts collection.

Happy Monday everyone!

We hope you are all having a beautiful start to the week.

On to our Moody Monday!

This week we are featuring our Hello my Deer Collection by Camelot Design Studio.  I love how this collection looks overall. The taupe and olive colors blend in perfectly with the pink.  It adds a feminine feel to the outdoor theme that is so trendy right now.

I had a chance to play with this fabric line and you can see my tips and tricks to make the Saybrook Island quilted pillow in an earlier How To blog.  Now don’t forget to look at our mixology grouping to find matching taupe, zinc and white colors.   And spruce it up with a touch of Mixology Woven in Cotton Candy!  You’d be surprised how it makes it all work!

Be sure to check out the full collection of Hello My Deer in your local quilt shop. Click here to find the one nearest your home.
