Late Finish – The Third Placemat

I did it! The third placemat is pieced, handquilted and bound πŸ™‚ You can still see the chalk lines - it hasnt had a wash yet...

Without the FAL, I would surely not have finished it, but now I can proudly present my three placemats together:

I quilted all three in a different design: the green one has some swirls, the red one has labyrinth-like lines all over and the turquoise one is very minimalist, with only straight lines. To be honest, the turquoise one actually is my favorite.

I quilted the straight lines parallel to the diagonal sides of the hexagon. You can see how the straight lines cross above the hexagon.

Another three will be coming up:

I'll definitely handquilt them - to build my skills but also because I love that I can take it with me and quilt wherever I am.

So this is my second finish for the Q3 FAL 2016, here you can see my original list.
