Today, I was sewing up a few more 3.5 inch pink blocks. I made a few more maverick stars, 9 patch and a few shoo fly blocks. I decided to use them all in a placemat. I really needed new placemats, so this was a good way to start.
It had been almost 2 years since I did any free motion quilting. This was a great way to practice and see how my sewing machine managed it. My mom gave me my sewing machine last summer and this was the first time I tried free motion quilting with it.
I really like my placemat. It's completely made up of scraps from my scrap bin, including the backing and binding. Yeah for scrap busting. And it counts as a finish!!! Yeah!!! That's ever better.
