Ashen Floral Placemats

Wanted to share my finished placemats. I really love that I've gotten confident enough in my free motion quilting to quilt feathers but now that it's all finished, I wish I would have chosen a different thread color. I had used a light gray so that the quilting would be subtle but now I wish I would have used the pale yellow that I used for the binding. I think it would have really tied it all together. I guess I'm just reluctant to use a bolder thread color choice since my mistakes would be more obvious. I think I'll have to move out of my comfort zone on the next FMQ project and opt for more visible thread.

From the very start of this project I knew I wanted to use yellow as the accent to the gray and black floral fabrics but now that they're done, I'm not 100% sure I like it as the binding. Still, they should coordinate well in the intended recipient's kitchen so that's good.

Now it's time to start planning my next project.
