Monday Making

 


The first bunch of placemats are now finished and I have the next bunch prepped.  If you are just trying out your FMQ these are a nice size project to practic on.  A simple meander chaining these thru the machine and they were done in minutes.  I went with a binding edge - cleaner finish and it used up more fabric.  But I am going to play with something new (and old)  today.


My daughter brought me a bag of scraps from her quilting room and rather than have it sit, time to get making.  Just seeing this colorful pile of goodness makes me smile.  I am sure I can get thirty 12" cheerful log cabin blocks out of all of this.  Her rather new scraps (she's a new quilter) going into a new project/


 BUT first I have to take care of this mess.  I had used this machine to finish up that last quilt of the year and then jumped right into those placemats - I knew this would be - yuck!  It's the beginning of a New Year - have you cleaned, oiled and put in a new needle for the year?  Your machine will love you for it.

Be sure to see what other 'making' is going on HERE .

Sewingly Yours,

Sharon
