Welcome quilt friends! Can you believe we are at project ten, the final project on the hop. Thank you for following along, visiting all the stops and all the quilters who have shared projects! Today is all about this sweet sewing machine mat. You won’t believe how easy this is to make!
The Sew applique on my mat is needle turned but you can customize the projects using the techniques of your choice. Plus there are five pockets to store your quilty supplies.
