Does it ever feel good to have this WIP finished.
These are 8 reversable placemats that I was asked to make for someone, she wanted something very solid that could be washed and abused 😉
They are 16″ x 20″ and were a lot of fun to make, this is my first real machine quilted project. I have learned alot about my machine and what works for me, they are not perfect but neither am I.
Now I’m off to sandwich a baby quilt and
try to machine quilt it too. I am an avid hand quilter but I am enjoying learning how to machine quilt. After the baby quilt my friend Peg has shown me some videos on thread painting and embellishment. I think this is the way I am going to go with my son’s quilt. I don’t think I will were get it done (solid enough) if I applique all by hand, but that is another WIP 😉 If I don’t have 5-6 WIP I feel stressed ;), I need some on the machine in all stages, some ready for the hoop, and my favorite, right Peg, PORTABLE! They are the best. My life would be so lonely without my little portable projects.
Does anyone out there enjoy portable projects too?
