Purple Placemat

In honor of June's color -- purple -- I did manage to make a placemat-of-the-month. I realized that I have hardly any purple (relatively speaking) in pieces larger than scrap size...so no noodle quilt this month. I used the Accu-cut machine to cut these little triangles, then sewed them together without too much attention to matching points. A quick, thick meander this morning to quilt it up, and I finished sewing the binding down today while the boys were in their art class. I sat in the cafe at the New Britain Museum of American Art (if you haven't visited, you're missing out) and had a wonderful conversation with the wife of one of the museum's trustees. What a delightful way to spend the afternoon!
