Slow Work in Progress

I'm slowly working on some table mats for a gift.

My lovely friend Liz kindly passed on this fantastic fabric which she had a generous amount of left after making a skirt. It has a kind of lineny feel, but I think is all cotton. It was just right since my sister liked the black and white idea- with not too much white for the practically minded among us! Bolognese and white table mats? Not so much! I had some others in my stash that my sister admired, but didn't quite have enough, so was on the hunt for something else...

The print doesn't go quite to the edge and I decided to make a feature of that.

I managed to get them cut out and started the quilting at the weekend.
They'll have red binding and text print backs. 

Hope to show you the finished product soon.

I am linking up today both with Slow Bloggers at Knotted Cotton and WiP Wednesday with Lee at Freshly Pieced, coz why not have two for one?!


  1. I love the handprinted look of your fabric and the red for the binding - looking forward to seeing the end result!

  2. The fabric's gorgeous and I like how you started to quilt it. And yep, definitely more fit for Bolognese than plain, crisp white. :)

  3. Lovely fabric and the red binding is going to look stunning.

  4. The fabric is gorgeous and it is going to make fabulous tablemats :)

  5. Gorgeous fabric! The red binding will look awesome on them!

  6. That fabric is pretty and red looks to be the perfect touch.
