Cloth napkins

I've just finished up sewing for the last swap I'm in this month. The Table Top Swap is on it's first round & we are swapping a set of four cloth napkins!
 After "stalking" my partner to find her likes, I settled on these new prints from basic greys new line "hello luscious". I am typically not a pink person but with the addition of the jumbo pink rickrack edging I think they turned out so sweet! 

 This is my favorite of the prints! Love that bold floral! Did you notice how lovely they coordinate with my Pfaltzgraff dinner plates?! 
 The reverse side is a perfectly matched robins egg aqua cotton.
 I love how the edges got a slightly rounded look to them.
They were a lot of fun to sew & now that I know how easy they are, I may have to make a few more sets in my colors!;) Just in case you'd like to make your own napkins here is the link to the tutorial I loosely followed!
In other news, look at this beautiful snowflake pyrex dish I found at the goodwill this week for $2.75!! Score!!! I'm going to use it in my sewing room to store my 21/2" squares, but will definitely pull it out again this winter & bake something yummy in it! Baked oatmeal perhaps?! That's my favorite winter breakfast dish. 

 Linking up the Amanda at crazy mom quilts & finish it up friday! 

                              And amylouwho at    

Edited 6.12.12, I'm also adding these to the summer sewing contest at Ellison Lane Quilts!!
