    FMQ Wholecoth Placemat Project from Craftsy Class

    Here's another project from Cindy Needham's "Design It; Quilt It" Craftsy class. This is a wholecloth placemat; the first of 4 that I am working on. Each one will be a different design, so stay tuned for each of the others as I finish them. (Did I mention that I'm LOVING this class!!!)

    I did the quilting using my DSM, a Juki TL98Q. I drew my design out on freezer paper before I started, and did quite a bit of marking with water soluble pencils on this piece before I started stitching using Superior Threads "Magnifico" 40 wt. poly thread. This is my first experiment using both the parallel lines and the cathedral window motifs.

    That's awesome! I'm inspired to actually use the craftsy quilting classes I bought!

    Beautiful! Think it needs a new description though.......thread art? FMQ project just doesn't do it justice.
