Invisible Thread...and How Did I Live Without It?

Wow!  When I was moaning about my decision to make placemats, and how much time it takes to finish the binding on them, several of my readers suggested that I machine stiitch the binding down with invisible thread.  Can't say enough good things about this stuff.  Of course, I wouldn't use it for a special quilt, but for placemats and quick little gifts, this stuff is awesome!  The only problem I had was that somehow my machine (a Janome 4623) overwound a bobbin, and it actually lifted the top of the bobbin off! 

And I just had to add this picture of the snowman my daughter and grandson made last week.  We finally got some snow.  I hope we get more!

Those turned out so cute and look so pretty on your table. I always use quilted placemats at my house. Love them! We are quilters so we need to surround ourselves with what we love. Nice job...love the way you quilted them too.
