Quilting your own fabric

Over the last four years of embroidery club I’ve made a few quilted projects. In the first year there was this lovely linen placemat.

Then then in year two, I made a silk pajama pillow. You tuck your pajamas inside this pocket and it sits prettily on your bed until you need your pj’s again.

Last year I added a quilted tea cozy with quilted tea cup holders. This set is made of cotton.

This year it’s a quilted laptop tote. The quilting is slightly different on the laptop tote, but the basic principal is the same.
