More Free Motion Quilt Along Preparations

>> Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Here is the cover of my Free Motion Quilting Journal. I cut out photos of quilted quilts from old Keepsake Quilting catalogues.

Then I went into the cupbaord and started pulling out projects to practice on. I don't honestly know how long ago I made this. I know I tried aging it by putting it in tea long ago. I have batting and backing with it - the stripes you can see is the backing fabric.

Then there's my 4 paisley placemats that need batting and backing.

I got too busy and distracted with other projects to finish these, but it's almost time to put my bright orange summer ones away.

I have a piece of Shangri-La by 3 Sisters that I'm using as a curtain which I'd planned to use for matching backings. Now I'm not so sure.

You can find my placemat pattern by clicking on the Patterns tab
{in case you need to make some too!}

My last practice piece is a table runner I put together with some of my leftover fabric from the placemats. I think it will go nicely with them on my giant table. This one needs backing and batting too.

I guess I'm doing some stash digging and busting this week - and a trip to the Local Quilt Store for some batting.

p.s. I almost forgot to post about Pat's giveaway! Pat at Silver Thimble is sharing her joy in becoming published by Martingale. Yay, Pat!
