Getting There, Almost and Finished

As the title alludes, I've worked on three projects this week. First up is the Mystery Quilt's top, now with borders and waiting for me to have help sandwiching the layers. FH is holding it up for the picture since it's too heavy for me at the moment.
 I did get the binding on my little runner too. Just need to sew it to the back by hand.
 Here's a close up of the quilting so you can see the variegated thread colors.
 And finally a set of eight placemats for a Christmas gift.
Next project goals are a baby quilt that is already cut and waiting to be pieced, finishing the binding on the little runner, and I'm doing another Mystery project. This time it's a table runner. We've already been given cutting instructions for our fabrics and get the next clue tomorrow. I haven't cut my pieces yet as my fabric is still in the wash, otherwise I'd be showing them off too.

Until next week!

Very nice ! I love the touch of using variegated thread. The beauty of quilting and handwork is enhanced by the little touches added by the artist.

I especially love the placemats !
