FROM DRAB TO FAB!!!! (First three comments get pattern free)

This idea came to me the other day while I was doing dishes.

I hate this corner of my cabinet...so lifeless. Don't you agree????


Went and got my new favorite color.



So it went from that.... to this....

I had actually wanted to make it bigger and I should have used paper or a different piece of fabric...but hey, I can adapt.



Matches my new dishes.  One of my sons sent me a gift card to Amazon and so I purchased these dishes.  He thought it was odd that I would buy dishes....I love love love them.

Feeling better now.

If you would like this pattern, just leave a comment, I will give the first three it free.

Barb, I love it. I am always making little round toppers for the kitchen. It never occurred to me to make a corner one. I would liove the pattern. Would look great in the bathroom too

What a great idea! Lacy and I both have boring corners also. I would love to have the pattern.

What a clever idea! I also think that the quilt you are disappointed with is beautiful.

That is a terrific idea. My counters are totally covered in stuff, so I wouldn't have any where to put the lovely little matt. (no need to send me the pattern)

Great idea! Your son was surprised you bought dishes? I think I remember you sharing a bit of a collection of dishes with us before. Love the green!

Glad you are feeling better! Cute little corner quilt. I love the colour. And your 'failure' quilt from your last post is beautiful. I just love it. It is definitely not a failure and neither are you!
