Placemats for charity

Today I finished making placemats for”meals on wheels”  Each year I make at least two placemats with a unique design.  This year I used abandoned blocks and a curvemaster foot to add borders which were cut freehand.  Then I layered the placemats and quilted them.  I squared up the placemats and bound them with 1 and 3/8″ strip.  This single binding strip is great for this application.  I have found that a double binding strip is too bulkie.  When you put six or eight placemats in a drawer, they curl up on the edges due to the binding.  If you use this single binding, they lay flat.

I am an Island Batik Ambassador for 2017. I enjoy the challenge of designing new quilt patterns with this very special batik fabric collection. I teach free motion quilting via my Youtube videos and Doodle of the Month program which anyone can sign up for by sending me an email requesting to be added to the list. I enjoy transforming fabric into unique quilts, t-shirts into memory quilts, and photos to wall art. I joined Toastmasters to find my voice and learn to share my quilts and stories with others.
