Here is my first UFO finish for the year:

Alouette was completely quilted and bound yesterday afternoon!  I have some new starts on the list, but should get those done in February.  A good start for the year!  Linking up with Quilting Gail!

I love batik fabric because it is two sided and the bright colorful designs are so pretty. Your placemats look wonderful and how great that you already have a finish for your goals.

I love batik fabric! The colors are so vibrant and it is always hard to chose a favorite. Your placemats are lovely and will brighten up any table.

Batiks love, let me count the ways! Strong vibrant colors, can use both sides, doesn't ravel, plays well with other fabrics :)

WOW! Great fabric design! Anyway, I found another fabric store which is Broadway Fabrics.

I like batik fabrics because you can use either side of the fabric.

Congratulations on being Aurifil's cover girl! ;-) Beautiful placemats indeed and a good start to your PHD.

I like batiks for the range of color in a single fabric. Also the tightly woven fabric is great for applique!

I love batiks because they are so nice to the touch, with vibrant colors as well. Your quilt it lovely.
