Black Challenge for Quilting Group

Yesterday I finished putting the binding on the Black Challenge quilting project for next Monday's meeting.

My effort is a table mat 12 inches square constructed log cabin style.

Hand quilting with coloured perle cottons.

I used a narrow 1/4 inch binding. Witness the woes of black - every hint of white fluff and fibre shows!

  1. It's nice and I LOVE the stitching - it looks like an egg timer! Now I wish I had photographed mine, but I was keeping it a secret (although I think everyone will know who did what). I'll stick it up on my blog after the meeting.
