Next up -

Is this one - 
I call it I Used To Be Placemats - 
Because they were - LOL -
The backing was a little short - 
So I used a striped fabric as a "poor man's" leader cloth - 

It's easy enough to cut along one of the stripes -
For a straight edge - 
Then line it up with the edge of the backing - 
And to pin on one of the stripes - 
They are all "built-in" straight lines - LOL - 

The stripes also help me clamp it onto the rail straight - 

I decided to quilt it with GOLD thread - 
And to turn it sideways - 

So that I can quilt the width of the placemats in the middle section in one pass - 
I'll re-hoop it as needed until I finish all three of them - 

And I'll save the ends for later - 

Because I can - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

This will be a good one for you to get some practice on. Maybe you can perfect your swirls.
