    Placemat vote

    ​I am working on these placemats and I thought 18 X14 inches would be a good size-A. I think I like it better as B, 18 X 12. What do you like best, A or B?

    Why not set a place setting of your china on it and see which fits best? I like plenty of room for the glass to be on the placemat, beside the plate so people don't put wet glasses or hot cups on my table outside of the mat. My vote is the larger one.

    Depends on your table size. Bigger table, bigger mats

    If size were the only consideration I would choose A ... but the design is more balanced in your B placemat. I think a 12" placemat is big enough and would therefore sacrifice size for design.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
