The placemats I want to use for free motion practice are almost done. I have the tops done for 5 and a nine patch and some fabric strips ready to make a sixth, then it is just cutting the backing and sandwiching and basting everything, and I am good to go. They are rather gigantic! I looked up measurements online and these are supposedly within normal range…but they would take up my entire table! Now I can begin to think about how I want to quilt them. I want to use a combination of walking foot techniques with free motion fillers. Hopefully the combination of a more traditional feel to the patchwork with a more modern approach to the quilting will work out.
