Part of the swag bag at QuiltCon was sets of charm squares. Clearly the object was to promote several fabric lines. The colours and patterns were not really to may taste, but too good to discard. I decided to combine this pattern/colour set with Osnaburg and natural linen to make a set of placemats and a table runner. I hand quilted with #8 perle cotton. I enjoy the contrast between the patterned and plain fabrics, and between the fabric textures.
