I finished up the reversible holiday placemats I was working on...the finished placemats measure 12 inches x 18 inches. Again I used these placemats by Amy a la Mode as inspiration.
I did a no binding method for finishing these, as I wanted them reversible, and couldnt decide on a binding color that I felt worked well on both sides of the placemats. I free motion quilted these using some stippling.
These will yet again be put away as a Christmas gift for a coworker.
I will be linking these up to Amylouwho's sew and tell. Stop by and see everyone's awesome finishes this week!

Several sets of those would be so cool.......you could find out what a giftee's kitchen colors are and make some with red,white, and blue for 4th of july on the reverse !
That last picture is worthy of a blog banner !
Thanks so much everyone! These really are super easy, AND you dont have to worry about binding if you dont want! Dolly I was thinking the same thing regarding my banner once Thanksgiving is over!!ReplyDelete
