Placemat Mini Quilt Sent!

Now that Colleen has received her placemat mini quilt from the flickr swap, I can blog it. I used my new walking foot which was a dream.

I just did a straight stitch, around each square and a line of stitching joining the rows together. Each line started and stopped over where the binding was to be, so no loose threads to tie in!

I made two, one for her and one for me.

This one I kept. I wasn't happy with the white space on the far left of the bottom two rows. I should have moved the second row down so it was inbetween them. Oh well, I was going for the modern randomness of space.

And this one was sent to Colleen. She has pinned it to her noticeboard at work. Check out her photo here!

Love them both! I don't know how to say this without possibly offending you, but I can see so much growth and progress in your quilting since I first started reading your blog. It has been wonderful to watch.

(You know I mean that in a good way, right?)
