This is the paisley pattern that I used on a small basket mat to go under a metal basket in my renovated bathroom!Will use this pattern again in future quilts.

I then quilted it and tore the paper away when done.
The first circle wreath I did, I quilted for the bottom of a basket I was covering for my newly refinished bathroom.
This is the direction I am doing the stencil in. First I turned it over and am working from the backside as I prefer the feathers to go in this direction. THen I traced the pattern in different colors so I could learn where I was going to retrace.
Having fun quilting today!
This weeks UFO project I am working on, which I thought was completed last week, (until I saw Cindy Needham's project) ~ a quilted bathmat for our updated bathroom to match the shower curtain.

UFO Sunday ~
First, the shower curtain that I posted photos of last week, well, it is now hanging up, and I love it. I would like to attach some seashells onto the curtain hooks, but that is a project for another day.
The second finish is I made a bath mat from more of the same fabrics, and quilted it, and it now hangs in the shower when not in use! You can read about it and see photos on my previous blogpost for my quilt along with Leah # 28.
I have a few other accessories for the bathroom started, and a few others in mind, but those are for another day.
Thank you for reading my post.
There is a rubber grip fabric on the backing (the fabric you use for the bottom of baby feety pajamas), and cotton batt in the middle for absorbency. I used a layer of tissue paper (for gift wrapping) on the back so the grippers would slide over my supreme slider . The paper is so thin it tore off very easily.
