I was able to sew today and I took full advantage of it.
I had started some place mats this week inspired by this pattern that I found while surfing Pinterest. That pattern inspired me to make these:
They’ve already been utilized in the living room. Two place mats are on our side tables and the two smaller mats are on our TV stand, one to hold a speaker and the other as the official home of the TV remote control.
I also made third place mat that’s going to be donated to the guild’s comfort quilt program to be donated to the local meals on wheels program for shut ins. That one has a blue border.
I’m going to fix that curvy bit on the left side of the binding tomorrow. It is really bothering me.
Inspired by my success with machine binding (and wanting to get more practise) I decided to completely machine bind a small quilt. Machine binding is a new skill for me and I thought why not get some more practise.
So I finished this scaled down version of Bonnie Hunter’s Fourth of July Quilt.
The backing material was a Value Village (thrift store) find. I picked it up having no idea what I’d do with it this until this quilt came along.
I also worked a bit on Frolic, the 2019 Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. I’m putting together the blocks and am finding it a very hard slog. I just can’t get into a rhythm making them. A bit of progress was made but not much. No pictures for that one as I worked on 3 or 4 blocks but didn’t finish any of the blocks.
Now to figure out what to work on tomorrow.
