Stash project

I finally finished the quilting on this table topper.

I wanted to try something new so I thought I would try the swag borders as per Mary Mashuta's Foolproof Machine Quilting book.

Far from perfect, but it was my first attempt and I like the soft flow it adds to the border. Now I only have to put on the binding and it will be done!

This was made with 100% stash fabric, including the backing. So today I am linking up with Clover and Violet and their Stash Project.
Happy Quilting!

I love, love, love Mary's technique and teach it as well. Most of my machine quilting these days combines her method with a litte FM. Your borders look wonderful.

Don't you just love a good stash project? It's guilt free hobby-ing. It takes a good stash to end with a good quilt. Lane
