RAINY SATURDAY SNIPPETS
I had these leftovers that didn't make it into my "Blues-ey" quilt; so, they are now placemats for DH and me--a sort of test to see how to do that fold over binding --
I also made matching napkins..
Lesson learned about quilting small items like this (new for moi!)--use darker or matching thread to avoid seeing wave-y lines....fyi: my machine quilting needs work.
But I think they go well with our everyday dinner plates--they are actually not that gold color--must be reflection from overhead lighting--they are beige.
I hope you are all having a terrific weekend. I am waiting for a VERY SPECIAL package which is due to arrive this coming Tuesday....more on this later....
I've set up Helga with her walking foot and put quilting thread on her; due to attach some binding on Sea Glass--I finally made the binding....now to get myself to do it!! A good friend of mine says that finishing is the least creative part of quilting and that's why we all drag our feet on it....I totally agree...
