Placemat Mania

I have been busy working on the Inlaws placemats…


Not sure why I didn’t just sew the edges on the wrong sides so that when I turned them to the right side I wouldn’t need a binding buuuuuuuut I think they will look much prettier this way!…




What do you think of the lavender I chose for the back? I think it works well with the other fabric, although I wish it was a bit darker. You can see I did 3 stripes with the front material at the top on the back. For the quilting I chose to go with a modern straight line about 1/2 inch apart.

Almost done binding one mat by hand (because I think it looks better than trying to sew it on the machine) 3 more to go! I’m sure I’ll get them done by Christmas…right!
