Our guild is having a quilt show at the end of April. We've been asked to make placemats that will be used as part of the decor. After the quilt show, the placemats will be donated to a local community organization.
I plan to make 3 or 4 placemats, and here is the first one I finished. I practiced some machine quilting techniques... I was following Judy Woodworth's Freemotion Quilting book. There are nice ideas in using multiple techniques. I had some difficulty. I'm pretty comfortable making feather sprays, but adding the outer designs proved to be harder than it looked.
