very cool !!!!!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
very cool !!!!!
Quilt magazine has a really cute placemat in the new issue. It is a snowman's face in the center with sashing on the sides. I really want to do this one and it's really simple but can be out all winter not just Christmas.
I'm doing a hexagon style placemat for my mom she has a big round table in her kitchen so I found a pattern for hexagon shaped placemats I'm just starting them so I don't have a pic yet but the pattern is Quick and Easy Table Topper & Runner by Lehmann Quilting Pattern # 103 here is a link to the page http://www.lehmannquilting.com/tablerunners.html
This is a pattern from a class I took last week they are simple and quick to do up. I've done the center of mine in a green pattern with pine cones, flowers, and gold strands and the backing will be gold with white snow flakes. I'll try and take a pic tomorrow of the one I have done
Love your placemats. Would you please explain how you posted these. I have been trying to post a picture and with this new format it doesn't work. Don't know where to start. Thanks.
I made this pattern also. But I didn't do the applique. I got 4 placemats from one charm pack.
I use a pattern by Simplicity #5964 which also has other patterns, like table topper. I make the oval place mats. I prewash material, felt batting and then use spray to tack them together and this works really good.

How adorable!!! You did a wonderful job.
I make placemats using two fabrics face together with batting on one top. I stitch around the placemat leaving an opening to turn. Turn right sides out but make sure you use a tool to get the corners out properly, then hand stitch the opening closed. Top stitch about 1/2 from the edge around the placemat, I then do some kind of quilting. Works great and is simple.
