    More great ideas. I love the placemats especially. And since I only have 13 bins of fabric I could really use the fabric.com gift certificate, I could not find the right fabric the other day for a project and the nearest fabric store is about 40 miles. So on-line shopping wins big. I just wish I could feel the fabric too, lol.

    Thanks again

    I love your episodes! You both have a great show! We just moved to Utah a year ago. I saw you are also a Thurgood! Makes us cousins! When I was on Studio 5 Brooke asked if I knew you Kris, had to say no. I haven’t met any Thurgoods yet. I know they all settled here. We were the only California ones. I hope to win the Fabric!! Pick me, pick me!! Can’t wait to make the place mats! I’ll embed you to my site. kathysideastoshare.blogspot.com

    I’ve used Fabric.com before, but never new they had an email newsletter. Even once you said there was a newsletter, it took me several minutes to find it. (And I’m quite internet savvy.) So a quick tip to Fabric.com, make the newsletter signup more prominent. :)

    What clever uses of the brown grocery bags! I thought having taught school for decades I’d created about everything possible, but now I learned one more! Too bad they’re as scarce as hen’s teeth at mainstream grocery stores; will have to make a trip to buy organic produce at W F just for the paper bags!

    And I love the idea of the roll-up placemat/utensils wraps!

    Keep the ideas coming,gals!

    What a great episode! Easy quilt and I love the easy basket idea – I can “see” a large fabric napkin inside sitting on a buffet to hold the rolls at a graduation party or Father’s Day picnic — smaller bags for smaller crowds.

    If you put a sturdy bottom in (think rubbermaid or tupperware lid or even a wrapped piece of corrugated plastic or cardboard) wouldn’t these make pretty planters for that family picnic or teacher appreciation luncheon? Set in a row of your not yet planted geraniums in the plastic pots they come in and you have a pretty centerpiece – and could even give the potted plants away as favors – see this is what happens to me, I always get carried away!! Thanks for the great episode

    Well… a friend’s son just got engaged last week. I think I will make them a picnic quilt using a grape themed fabric then add two plastic wine glasses and a bottle of wine for those romantic nights on the beach or a sumer concert in the park. Or maybe use a chili pepper fabric and include some Margarita mix, Tequila and some margarita glasses. Ooooooh the possibilities are endless.

    I love the frayed flowers and fabrics! I’ll use your paper picnic basket idea to make an additional wedding gift for a new happy couple ‘deep in the heart of Texas’. BBQ fixin’s, chips and salsas and a nice bottle of bubbly. The bottle will be wrapped in a repurposed denim jeans leg (cut about 12′ from cuff and with raw edges sewn together to form a western wine bag. I’ll tie it all together with torn bandanna fabric for a scrappy ‘home on the range’ look.
    As we say in Texas, Bless Yore Heart for the cute ideas and inspiration.

    I cut up an old tshirt of my husband’s and made a tube top of it. I didn’t want the graphic that was on the shirt so I used the applique idea you shared last week and cut long strips of jersey fabric and scrolled them into flowers and curls all over the front of the shirt. It turned out really cute. thanks for the idea!

    PS, I also embedded the DIY episode on my blog.

    Hi, my name is Michelle and I am a fabricaholic!! I love fabric. I love the feel of it, the smell of it… you get the idea. When my sons were little, they would start to cry when we pulled into the Fabric store parking lot because they knew we’d be there for a loooong time. Thanks for the episode on making the quilt top. Very cute.

    Yes, I am a fabricoholic too! I love the fabrics you chose for the quilt. It looks so fun! I think the basket idea is cute. I’m thinking it would be a great “green” shower or new bride gift by adding natural cleaning supplies and sponges, with some old ripped up cotton t-shirts for rags. Or for the sewer/crafter, fill it up with ‘found’ assorted skeins of yarn, fabrics from yard sales (like sheets or clothes made out of neat fabrics to re-fashion clothes or do crafts), bead stuff, or other items of interest to the person in mind. I love your shows and am always interested to see what you come up with next.

    I just recently found Fabric. com and love all the choices there. Your blanket and placemats are wonderful. I can see them in a bright kid’s fabric with placemats with each child’s name appliqued on them. They’d be great for a lunch at the park or on the patio. Thanks for more great ideas!

    I’ve never tried quilting, but this seems like a pretty foolproof way to start! I think filling the paper bag basket with gardening supplies would make a fun gift, and then the recipient could continue to be “green” by using the empty paper basket to recycle their newspapers. Keep the great ideas coming!

    Love the placemat. What a great idea. Thank you. I have so much fabric in my home but every time I want to make something I pout because I don’t have any of the really cool fabrics that are so popular today like the ones you used in the quilt. I have boring stuff that’s all matchy matchy and subdued. I would be thrilled to win a fabric.com shopping gift because then I could buy some of the really awesome fabrics. I LOVE fabric.com because it’s set up so well and it’s so easy to search around the site for things.

    I recommend trying fabric.com as well. Here’s a tip: their swatches are inexpensive and a really great way to “try on” the more expensive fabrics like the faux leathers and more expensive home decor fabrics. And fabriholics can also earn frequent buyer points that can be applied to future purchases. I enjoyed the webisode and will definitely try my hand at quilting. Thanks Kris & Kim for a great starter project!

    that is such a cute idea for the paper bag picnic basket. i think it would be good for gifts at a bridal shower or a teacher ‘summer-off’ kind of gift.
    and the fabric is beautiful. you wouldn’t have to sew that well with such fabrics to work with. they look adorable just on the roll.

    Grandbaby due next week and this basket idea will be great in giving the Momma and Baby their treats. (Diapers, cream, outfits, disposable cameras to be kept in all rooms etc.) You could use your stamps to decorate the bag too. Maybe even make the quilt with a baby theme too! Such possibilities I can’t wait to try.

    Using the oilcloth is a great idea for the placemats! I’m on my way to buy some and if it’s not available, I’ll be at fabric.com later today! I love your show and the gift bag idea is perfect for the baby quilt I just made – the parents are both eco-conscious and I don’t have time to sew a bag, and was worried about what I can do. I’m going to stamp the outside bag and decorate it a bit. Thanks!

Pkus my girls love to have picnic’s so they would love to make those placemats too. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas. Those paper baskets could be used for so many things, like gifts for teachers, baby showers, birthdays. Love the idea..

    I love this project- I am not a seamstress- but I think I will try this one. My only excuse for not sewing is I’m afraid I will become a fabric-holic too. I am an avid scrapbooker- so I am already a paper-holic!

    Anyway- I think I will make these for all of the football fans (Oregon State Beavers) in my family. They love to tailgate and these would work great. I will fill the basket with all of the tailgater requirements- BBQ sauce, chips and dips plus a pennant flag and some pom poms.

I want to make this picnic quilt in adorable animal prints from Fabric.com and take it with us to the zoo for her birthday. I thought animal crackers, monkey bread, and a map of the zoo would be great to put in the paper “picnic” bag. Although she’s only 6. I know she’ll treasure this b-day gift!

    Once again, oh so Fabulous!!! You all are so crafty and I love how you used this for a picnic quilt, but I have to say… I also love that you can not only apply this to a picnic basket but a baby blanket for a girl or a boy! So your basket out of paper bags, you could put cute baby blanket, diapers, toy, onesie with applique on, and an oil cloth diaper changing pad. How simple is that! ;)

    Just loved the quilt and plan to make one. Love Fabric.com as well. Have purchased from them and been totally satisfied. Plan to make a baby basket for my daughter who is having a baby by putting in a baby quilt, baby wash, baby powder, and all of the baby things needed when they arrive home from the hospital. If time, I will also make a basket for her, as Mom’s need TLC, too. Her basket might include a coupon for a facial and a note that I will come do laundry, cook, clean, or babysit for a day as well as lotions, manicure stuff and things that make her feel special.

I saw a gift box idea online with sewing notions in a plastic container and I would love to do something like that for her. Especially good scissors and cutter, if these aren’t right, nothing else goes well in sewing. So please pick me!!!!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    The quilt would be a great baby quilt and the placemat, perhaps made larger, would be a nice changing pad for a new baby. Liked the bag basket, too!

    Hello Ladies, I would use the basket for baby gifts for a friend, when one of us gives birth we all put gifts in a basket. I love the $100 give away because I live in the Netherlands and it is very hard to find those cute fabrics you use in the VS and when you find it it is very expensive too. Would love to hop on the airplain for a shopping trip, I even looked for opportunities to go to The Creative Connection! Maybe I should enter the lotery for but I am really hoping to win the $100 gift certificate.

    Now that you are changing the studio, any change on projects for organizing the craftroom etc? I am planning on changing the attic into my sewing ”domain’ and I could use some ideas

    Greetings from the Netherlands, happy crafting, Francisca

    Quilting can be intimidating but it really isn’t! Thanks for addressing those fears so many sewers have about quilting.
    I’ve been a fabric.com user for awhile and have NEVER been disappointed with any of the fabrics I’ve ordered. Can always use more fabric in my stash for cute projects like the placemats!
    Great show! Look forward to next week!

    I am in love with the quilt and placemats! This looks like it would be a great starter project for me since I have not yet taken on quilting. The placemats are a perfect solution for toddlers using resturant tables. This would give them a clean eating surface. Hmmmm, I wonder if you could add small suction cups to the mat? That might help keep it in place. Fun, fun ideas!!! I love the show and I am looking forward to each new episode. Sure wish I could have won that cricut cake machine. I’ve been eyeing it at Michaels :)

    **Just wondering if there was a trick to sewing oilcloth. I have used it before to make bibs (double sided) and it seems to stick under the presser foot.**

    My grandmother that actually taught me to quilt passed away a few weeks ago and she left for me her stashes of fabric and sewing things. This will be a great project to try out on some of her old fabric. Thanks for inspiring me to dust everything off and start up again. :P

    Love, love, love it! I would use the basket as a “gift basket” more than a picnic basket, probably. The first thought I had was a “Breakfast in Bed Basket” with mugs, coffee or tea, a jar of honey and homemade scones. You could even include a small tray.

    Thanks ladies!

    My daughter and I are excited to try your picnic quilt! I have a friend who loves hedge hogs and maybe we will try to find some owl fabric. Outdoor toys for a day in the park would be great in your faux basket – or maybe they could be used (with another container hidden inside) for a beautiful flower arrangement.

    I am glad I happened onto the Fabric.com website, thus finding your website. (I found it through MyPoints.) I really enjoyed watching the two of you. I was thinking there are all kinds of uses for the “paper basket”. Could put baby items in it for a baby gift. Items to take to the beach. Bridal shower gift with linens, soap, etc. Fill it with children’s items for a birthday gift. The possibilities are endless. This sure makes a cute alternative to the “gift bag”. Thank you and keep up the good work.

    ps I would fill the bag with chocolate… lots of chocolate…….. and maybe some popcorn, because the two just go well with each other and a super cool movie. Like “The Fountain” or “Ink”.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a
    lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced
    but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
    without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to
    help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate
    it.
