Everyone Needs a Place… Mat{t}?

I made place mats and coasters as a wedding gift. It got me dusting off my FMQ {free motion quilting} skills or lack there of. I experimented with thread brands and which of my machines did a better job. I ended up favoring my old faithful Bernina 1530 for the quilting and using Güterman machine quilting thread for this project. {Later this week I will post the birthday quilt I made over the weekend using Masterpiece thread. Pam had recommended the thread. It is very fine… so fine you can fill up your bobbin with gobs of it!}
Did I get pics of the coasters? Nope. Thought I did. Didn’t. Rats.
The fabrics are Freebird by Moda and some linen/cotton blend leftover from the Groom’s Hat I made.
Oh, and I thought glass head pins aren’t suppose to melt??

You’ll notice…over there, in the right side margin…the Process Pledge button…see it?
I, Robyn aka Coffee & Cotton, pledge to talk more about my processes, even when I can’t quite put them into words or be sure I’m being totally clear. I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.
