Quilted placemat

Quilted placemat
I am getting a bit faster on the pot holders ... so decided to try coordinating placemats to go along with them ... this was my first attempt ... which is now off the docket as 1" squares are a bit ambitious for a 'quick' effort.


I used this as my inspiration.

I will keep this one and after the holidays finish out the set for me!  But in the interim, I need to try a couple of options this evening for a band of color that will be fun, but not quite as complex as 60 1" squares.

Hope your holiday gift creation is going a bit more expediently ;-()

oh ... and I almost forgot ... welcome Mary ... my 100th follower!!!  Who knew?!?!?

All the best
Lisa
