Some gift sewing

Only had to make one gift for Christmas this year. A set of place mats!


I went ahead and used my pattern that I posted a while back.


They sew up so quickly and easily! I used a Moda Crossweaves as the background and three different shot cottons for the lines. I’m addicted to these solids that have some added texture… I wish I had every color there is!

    They are really great! I especially love the heavy quilting across the blue stripe.

    These are really very nice — they would look great in either casual or more formal settings, so versatile and beautiful quilting!
