Lindsay's (Mis)Adventures in Sewing & Quilting: Bartley's Placemat

It's been a while since I've done any sewing and I decided it was time I get back into it. And in doing so, I did an impromptu project. It's almost my first without any instructions and my first measly attempt with free motion quilting.

Bartley's old placemat was getting really dirty and tearing up (thanks to my washing machine). Thanks to a friend, I had two pieces of doggy fabric that was just the perfect size to make him a replacement placemat for his food and water in the same shape of a bone.

I started Friday night and finished up Saturday. While it's not the prettiest thing thanks to my paw prints and hearts, I'm still pretty proud of it and my attempt. Besides, Bartley won't complain. Plus, we have two very different sides so we can switch things up if we want to!
