Disappearing away down south for respite from the heat and to enjoy the glorious coastline is all very wonderful, but it doesn't get much quilting done. Having had a few delightful days away I hope to get back to doing some patchwork and quilting this week.
Last week I did manage to complete, prior to going away, some place mats for the friend who lives in Albany. Blue and white are her favourite colours and the colour scheme of her home so I knew as soon as I saw the blue and white fabric it would be for her.
I did some free-motion quilting of feathers in the white sections, along with some simple large stippling on the outside borders. Machine binding also helps to bring the process to a swift conclusion, though had I more time, there is something very relaxing and pleasurable about completing the binding by hand.
Now to get back to adding some borders and doing some sandwiching on my next current 'flimsy'!
Until next time,
