It is a FINISHED Mat

After finishing the quilting on my little table mat, it was time to bind it.  I have to say it was fun to play with quilting designs on this mat.  The only person that I wanted to please was ME.  I officially declare that I am pleased.  
I am very grateful that my sewing machine has a threader on it. The blurred vision would have made threading a nightmare -if not impossible right now.  Having good tools is a concept that I was taught by my art mentor.  I called her Nana even though we were not related. She insisted that I use good brushes, quality paint, and good paper or canvas for my paintings.  Once you see how good tools help, it is easier to invest in them for anything you plan to do for a  long time. 

For the binding, I chose a print fabric that I just like.  The colors were good for both sides of the project so I went for it.  
Here is my finished table mat. 

The quilting was fun and I think that binding plays very well with the fabrics. 


Until Next Time,

Your little table mat looks GREAT!! I like the variety in your quilting motifs - and your binding fabric is perfect. I'm glad your machine has a threader, too - good tools make our lives so much easier - ;))
