So thanks to GO! and Alex…I now have the cutest FINISHED table mat for our 5th Wheel!

P1100494

Rather than machine quilt it, I opted for hand quilting it using variegated ( No. 12) brown Valdani Perle Cotton.  I took bigger stitches than normal …and I must say…I REALLY like the effect!  It makes these stars twinkle just a little bit brighter!

P1100495 See what I mean…well worth a little extra time to hand stitch it!

P1100496  Even the back sparkles as I buried all knots and threads…

P1100498 I might just have to bring this one in when we’re not on the road! :o)

Oh…and did I mention that this is my first OPAM finish for November!  Wahoooo!!  Got to love that!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

  4. Beautiful! The brown hand quilting was the right thing to do - really makes it awesome. It will look great on the table in the 5th.

  8. I love the way you quilted it. The pattern is awesomw also. I think I could use one of those for our RV!
    At the quilt show this past week-end, we saw a lap quilt quilted like that. I think that is a clever idea.
    I agree, you should start designing.

  9. That made a beautiful table mat, especially with the prim fabrics. I need to start some soon, like the idea of having new ones just for Christmas.

  16. I love your table mat. Totally my colors! I'm so envious of those who can look at a pattern and see the potential, even if the colors/fabrics used are completely unappealing to them. I saw the pattern and thought "yuck", but WOW...you sure did change MY mind!

  18. I really do love this - and I have a question for you. I've just recently gotten the Go and am loving it. My question is what dies you have, which ones you use the most and which ones you want but don't have yet. Oops, that's more than one question! blessings, marlene
