For The Boys Blog Hop

I love participating in Madame Samm's blog hops!  I am back in the 'For The Boys' blog hop.  How could I pass it up?  I have two adorable little men in my life that are my greatest source of joy.

I wanted to create something quilted that I know they would not only like visually but would be practical.   Using Amanda Herring's newest fabric line  of Riley Blake Fabrics called 'Twice As Nice', I created two sweet placemats for my little munchkins.


Now I may have mentioned once or a hundred times that I love embellishing and in my top 5 embellishment list is ric rac!   So you will see some of that popping into these placemats, just to give a personal mom touch=)

Go and check out the other awesome bloggers to see what they have up!
