Two done, two to go

on my scrappy red patchwork project! I'll have 4 place mats and a table runner when I'm finished. Here's one of my finished place mats:

These are the two place mats that I have to finish hand stitching the binding on.
I had fun with the quilting on this project. The random sized heart pattern I stitched seems to give a whimsical feel to the project, which I really like. My freehand machine quilting is somewhat easier to see on the back of the place mats, although I must say that red is one of the more challenging colours to try and capture in a photo.

  7. Saw the wristlet and needlecase you made for a gift and they were wonderful. I'm not a blogger but enjoy reading others blogs and being inspired by them. Do you have a tutorial for either of those things, especially the needlecase or could you tell me where to find the pattern? Hoping spring will be here soon in Pennsylvania.
