At last block 5 of Sweet Tweets is done. I pretty much have spent the last 2 weeks making placemats. First for my youngest daughter, 2 sets of 8 and then 2 sets of 4 for myself. I think I am placemat done. I did take some time to take down all my fall wall hangings and table runners and Christmas ones replaced them. Getting into the spirit of the season.This particular block was a bit of a challenge. Lots of appliqué work on this one. I am doing my appliqué by machine with invisible thread, my preferred brand is Quilters Select, and I do a very tiny button hole stitch on my Bernina 750 using a 1.6 width and 2.0 length.
And my finished second set of Christmas placemats. I just love this particular fabric and I quilted them with an Aurifil 28wt turquoise variegated thread in a serpentine stitch. So time to do some Christmas baking now.
