    I make alot of placemats for my customers, and have found a 4oz poly batting to be the best. Have tried different lofts and they just didn't work as well.

    Actually, mine aren't that high. I have moved my sewing machine to the dining room table and moved my placemats. HAHA, I did this after we rushed to Joanns to catch the sale on the sewing table and cutting mat..hahaha. It's a little higher than I like, so I have to stand and sew which is new to me but isn't bad. However, I tend to stand on one leg and after a few days of sewing it begins to ache, must be the old age creeping up on me. :) Anyway, I quilted mine enough that they lay flat, but to be honest, when we eat dinner I always move the placemats. I made them to be there when we aren't..haha that sounds stupid, I know.

    Heather,

    Some items are just to look pretty, i.e., placemats, tablecloths, and throw pillows. Sounds like you are just saving yourself some work which in turn will allow you more time to quilt.

    you are right. i would never use my placemats as actual placemats! they are a work of art. and any time saved for quilting is great. :P
