I have never done so much quilting. It feels great! Thank you Leanne for showing it so many times and giving a lot of tips how to do. Not only that I have managed it also the place mat feels incredible. The quilting gives a lot of stiffness to the piece and texture. I do not know how many lines I have been sewing taking care not to cross over but it took three bobbins to finish this one - that surprised me!
I used a variegating thread in aqua. It gives the grey background a lovely addition. For the back I used a white thread keeping it almost invisible so you can read the story (if there is one)

This morning was a beautiful day so I finally could use the time when two kids are training to go down to the beach with the little one. We had a lovely walk and she was a great helper. The streets were really slippy and she was the whole way pretending ice skating and chatting I should not walk in high heels here.
Now it is time to sit down and think about Q1 2014. There are some UFOs that want to be finished and some plans that need to become reality.
