New York Beauty Quilted Placemat

Creating this New York Beauty quilted placemat was a challenge. I think the New York Beauty is one of the most beautiful patterns, also not for the beginner. I had to try a few with some scrap fabric I had around and so I did, well I found it is not as easy as I thought it would be. It was a challenge and sewing on the curve without distorting the pieces was the most difficult. I found it fun and I still like the end result of the mat and use it for my Mac Book on my desk. Adds some cheer to my desktop.

This project gave me a chance to work with sewing on the curve, paper peiceing, and free motion quilting. All on a small scale. The more I practice the better I will get and I wonder what my post a year from now will look like and what I will think when I look back at this?

Wonder what I well try next? Maybe another quilted placemat.
