Before Mom got here I was able to do some more quilting on my placemats. During breaks from Tell It To The Stars I actually got them finished.
I really love how they turned out and so did Mom because she put them in her bag to take home.
I thought the quilting would take a long time but it didn't. If you look in the gray section you can see that I didn't get carried away with precision. The uneven spaces won't be visible under a plate.
I had this binding fabric in my stash and it worked perfect. It was a leftover piece from a quilt back so I was able to cut 4 long strips with no piecing required. I did these with a single binding. I thought that a double binding would be too thick. With that backing print you can't even tell that I used about 5 different colors of bobbin threads to empty some bobbins.
The sweatshop is progressing along. Today we are going to take a break to go test drive the Innova longarm. I might be in the market.....
