I like big quilts and I cannot lie!

I finished another thing!  Well, several things actually - I'm totally counting this as seven quilted items for the 14 in '14 thread!  Wink  I made these for my sister and her husband for their first Christmas together as a family with their baby girl.









I'm super-pleased with the quilting on the centre mat - it's a bit wibbly in places but I did almost all of it by eye, so I'm amazed it came out as well as it did; FMQ is not my strong point.  The whole set had to be finished and bound in a huge rush yesterday so I could wrap them up and hand them to my sister (otherwise we're not seeing them until the 26th, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a Christmas table set).  So this is the first time I've done all-machine binding, too.  It went sort of ok, though obviously the back isn't as lovely and tidy as it would be if I'd finished it by hand.  And I did some of it upside down until I figured out what I was doing wrong.  But anyway, I'm learning that non-quilters don't tend to see stuff like that!  XD

Those are beautiful!  I'm glad you showed a close up of your quilting - it looks great.

I, too, would count it as 7 finishes  Smiley

Thank you.  They did manage to find and unwrap this before they had Christmas dinner, and my sister called to tell me that they'd used them upside down because she really liked the pinecone fabric.  I was a bit "ksdjlksjdbfl... ok, if that's what you wanted!"  Roll Eyes  *faceplam*

lol I think a non-quilter would be worried about soiling the "pretty side". Grin

Of course, we all love the quilted side best, but you have to admit, the pinecone fabric is really lovely! ha
