My First Attempt at Quilting!

I found this placemat at a craft sale:

I thought it was cute and figured it couldn't be that hard to make.  But the thing is, I've never quilted before.  I called up my good pal Jessy Roos who is an expert quilter, and she agreed to help me out with it.  We went shopping one night to Fabricland to check out what they had to offer.  We started looking around at the blue Christmas fabrics, and had such a hard time finding any fabrics that I liked that looked good together.

I had seen some adorable red and green fabric that I loved, so we decided it would be best to switch the color from blue to red and green.  That opened up a lot more options, and we found some really cute fabrics!  Check out what we got:

My task before Sunday is to wash and iron the fabric.  Check back to see my progress!
