Back on 12th March 2015 I posted about the twister (whirly gig) patchwork that we had done at Franklins Patchwork Group. Whilst sorting through my Round-tu-it box I came across these unfinished pieces. Whilst the Brother Innov 10 was set up for quilting the Swoon Baby Quilt, I decided to get yet another unfinished project out of the way.
I have quilted the two placemats differently. One has a straightforward grid quilting in the ditch and the other I experimented with quilting 1/4 ” away from piecing seams to highlight the individual twisters. Both styles of quilting have pros and cons, I don’t really have a preference but another time I think, for speedy completion, I will stick with “in the ditch” grid lines. The binding is a pretty floral print that came as part of a set of Fat Quarters bought in Hobbycraft. Whilst the print is charming I am very disappointed with the quality of the fabric. It is very thin so the remaining FQ’s will be kept back to use as bindings on small projects only.
