Good Morning to you! I hope your Monday went smoothly. I mentioned that I had made some 4th of July placemats and wanted to share the first one that is finished. All are made and just waiting for the binding to be tacked down. I had fun with this project and machine quilted it, adding some more dimensional quilting than I've ever done. On the red and white stripes, I have so wavy designs. For those who machine quilt, remember I am just starting out with this-I prefer to hand quilt, unless it is a project like this. This was a quick project, only took about 4 hours-which for some of you sounds like I'm very slow, I am.
Last night I started tacking the binding down, but also in the middle of hand quilting a granddaughter's quilt, so stopped after finishing one. We have friends coming for dinner on Saturday night and I want to be able to put them out. I really love the look and also how quick and easy they were. Once they are all on the table, I will share the look with you. However, I made a runner last year for our island and after doing this project, I may need to redo the runner.
I'm off to the pool with the kiddos today, it will be so hot here. NOT complaining though.
Hope you have a fantastic day!
