These place mats and table runner were a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law. They were made from a "Coconut" Bali Pop, with black Kona on the back.
I wanted to keep the quilting pretty simple so I stitched on the outside of the geese and used a free hand "swirls and tails" motif for the background. My inspiration for the "swirls and tails" came from Wendy over at Ivory Spring. She does beautiful work on her domestic sewing machine and shares her process often.
I may have to make myself a set of these, as I really liked how they looked on my table!
