I decided to make some placemats for Christmas Gifts, colouring the design with my Inktense Pencils.
I used a cream cotton for the background so that the subtle cross hatch pattern on the fabric showed through the image. The design is outline quilted in black thread, then free motion quilted with a cream in the background. The black outline quilting can be clearly seen in the back of the placemats.
I added some small dots of silver ’bling’ using a pearlescent fabric paint to the tips of the gum blossom and flower centre.
I am really happy with the finished results and found a perfect green fabric in my stash for the binding.
