This week I've been working a custom order for place mats - 6 of them - all the same.
Customer said she didn't mind what I did just as long as there was some red in them.
Here they are:
I kept the colours quite muted and used these gorgeous fabrics: They are called Chicken and Egg from the Henley studio. Beautiful quality fabrics.
.....then free motion quilted them on the table top and finished them off with a dotty taupe binding.
They measure 12" x 15" .
Next up is a little lap quilt I made for my father in law. It is Father's Day here in the UK tomorrow so this will do perfectly. I find it quite difficult to choose fabric for a man's quilt and I didn't really have much in my stash. I used a Bonnie hunter pattern called Dancing Nine Patch. It's free on her website.
I put my sewing machine back on the carriage and quilted this one on my frame. I had been doing a few projects on the table top and was missing playing on the frame so it was good to get back to it. Pretty please with how this turned out.
I kept the quilting plain and simple and only used one colour of thread - a nice dark tan.
Next week I will be quilting another baby quilt and I have started a new quilt - well I have to keep up my supply of UFO's don't I ?
Thanks for visiting today.
