Binding on the last 3 of these 4 table mats for DD1's boyfriend.
I gave him a gift certificate for Christmas (!!) for 2, as I have given him 2 before, and he wished for 2 more.
I ended up adding 2 more so he now has 6 - for being nice :-) He is my very patient blog helper whenever I am in need. Due to him giving me good instructions it has been a while now :-)
I also found cat fabric to have on the back as you see. This guy loves cats.
Then I did 2 of these - the other 2 are from a couple of days back.
These blocks belong to a Nearly Insane quilt in the making.
I never was to fond of the original colourway, but (re-)fell in love with the quilt after seeing it done in red and white by Reiko from Japan.
Next the Celtic applique block from Quilt University class with Nancy Chong was to be finished !
Celtic applique is not at all me - conclusion after class - but Nancy Chong is a very good instructor, and I have learned a lot about the bias stem maker from Clover, inner and outer curves and weaving the bias strip over and under to make the design look right and good ! Good learning curve ! Learning is never wasted :-)
As you know, I already have a full and finished Dear Jane quilt, but I am enjoying a one on one swap with a friend. We have swapped before, in autumn colours, and this time summer colours are the palette. We both make 2 and 2 blocks alike - keep one set, send the other.
These blocks lacks the final applique around the curves.
