I decided to layer just the batting and the top and then quilt it.
I used several of my Sulky Blendables to do some “utilitarian” quilting stitches. I’ve finished quilting it and I’ve added a back to make it into a sort of pillowcase so that I can add some filling to make the mat.
Yesterday I bought some black upholstery nails and fixed the fabric to the meditation stool. I think it looks quite nice now. I plan to do some similar stitching on the seat to match that on the mat.
Hopefully I’ll be able to show you the finished articles tomorrow.
