And what I made..

And this is what I made for swapping with  Cynthia.  I used lots of Anna Maria Horner scraps along with some other saturated scraps-Negley, Fassett and the like.  I think some of my infamous turnip fabric even wound up in there.  Sure it did, right on the bottom right.  I used some scraps of linen to frame it all in and lots of straight line quilting in a really lovely gold beige Aurifil 40 wt.  Perfect with the linen!  Measuring about 16" by 22", I think it is a nice table mat size.  The binding is a remnant that my daughter picked up for me in Oregon.

Done and delivered at guild last week along with scraps a some rope.  Yep.  Rope.  Cynthia makes simply awesome fabric baskets with the rope and I decided that it was better being used at her house than sitting in a bin at my house.

Have a super rest of your day!
