Placemat swap

I joined the placemat swap on Flickr and my partner is Autumn. She has just received her package in the mail so I can post her placemat. Autumn said she loves bright, primary colors and wanted something with circles or curved piecing. When she said bright colors, I automatically thought of Kaffe Fassett. I love his fabric lines and own quite a few of his books. His quilts are so inspirational! Anyways, here's Autumn's placemat: I had a hard time working on such a small scale. I had other ideas to add to it but the it made it larger than a placemat so I kept it simple. I also made her a little potholder...
For a look at more of her loot, go here. Go here to see all the other great placemats.
There will be no sewing for me this weekend. I have a weekend filled with outdoor concerts, goodbyes, beaches, cookouts, fireworks and probably too many margaritas :0).
Have a great weekend my wonderful bloggy friends!
