I've wanted to make a quilt for so long now, but it has seemed so daunting so I thought I would start with something small to practice on, and go from there.

I decided to make a mat for underneath my sewing machine because everytime I move it, it leaves marks on my desk.

With some help from this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305294.0 I came up with something I'm happy with for a first try! I just kind of threw fabric together too so I'm not sure how great it all goes together!

Great job for a first try!  Even for not a first try! hahha!!  I like the idea too, I need to make me some of these, I have a couple of different machines, and a serger, and I go back and forth between them, often on the same project.  They each do certain things differently and I use them all for different tasks.  But I am constantly pushing one out of the way, and then pulling in another.  It dorsn't make marks, but the darn no-slip feet make it very frustrating when you want your machine to slip!!!  ooh oohhh I could make matching dust covers for them too!  *scampers off to sew*
