Just a couple of weeks away now and we will be celebrating Valentines day. To get a head start on the season, I put together one of these fast and fun little candle mats, a part of the Quilted Table Tablerunner January Challenge. It was the perfect project to work on some of my domestic machine quilting skills (or lack of) :-) I have to say, that there is a sense of accomplishment when you are able to do a small project and see it completed in a couple of hours. I am very new at the domestic machine quilting. We have a little "Club" at our local quilt shop that is just a ton of fun. Playing not only with movement, but threads, fabrics and battings is a blast! If all goes well, I might even become semi efficient with this little process. Here is the back view, which I think I like as much as the front! Grab a couple of fat quarters and some batting, drop thoses feed dogs and give it a try, you will be surprised at how much fun it can be! Caution though, it may become addicting!
