Space Invaders and the Tea Towel Placemats are completed.
I wasn’t really planning on machine quilting Space Invaders this soon, however I had the perfect backing, a piece of batting the correct size and the dark gray thread on the machine.
Connecting Threads had their backing on sale a month or so ago, so this piece jumped in my cart and demanded to be the backing for Space Invaders. I think the name of it is Lava Lamps and it is perfect.
Up close you can see the dark gray thread on the black background, but when you step back it all blends in nicely.
I am very pleased with the two Tea Towel Placemats. The applique on the top placemat was made during the booth demo at the Quilting Expo last year while the bottom applique was created with an Edyta Sitar Accuquilt die. It was also a good project for me to practice Baptist Fans using the Westalee ruler.
What a wonderful finish to the month of May. Now it is time to decide what June’s goals will be.
