Milk and Cookie Mats: Free Download!

Hey everyone!

I am so excited to introduce this project to you today: "Milk and Cookie Mats" designed and created by John Q. Adams (also known as Quilt Dad). This project comes from the new book Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays, authored by John and published by Lark Crafts. John has a great preview of the book on his blog. (More about this talented quilter later this week!)

Jenny and I were thrilled to share this project because it is a fun, modern design that is also versatile. Depending on the colors of fabric you use you could create a set of these for every season! (What a fun idea...)

See what materials you need, select your fabrics and get started! I'm going to gather my supplies today and do a little WIP/Show and Tell post tomorrow. I'm still deciding whether to "chicken out" and use felt for my first go at this design, I am not a very precise cutter or piecer when it comes to patchwork.

This pattern comes with a second design. Here it is (cute!):

Thank you to Lark Crafts and Amanda, our wonderful contact there, for sharing this project with us!

Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays will be released in August! Stay tuned for a chance to win the book right here on Stumbles & Stitches.
