    Welcome new member! I'm not sure I'll be much help on the placemat, but what I see is mighty pretty. I'm sure someone else will come along with some info.

    What is it that you need?

    Welcome from NC. The placemat looks pretty good to me. I don't think I would do anything differently.

    the obly thing that I can see wrong could be that it is maybe slightly off center? but that could just me my eyes. I have horrible depth perception. or is it sitting on a chair? I can't tell. need to really get to the eye doctor.

    This is a placemat i purchased & would love to make them, I just can't figure out how to go about this,I have tried but just does not look the same.I can't figure out the steps of this placemat.There is no start or finish to it that i can see. If someone knows how, i sure would appreciate this, :|

    Ok mrsbonnie....here goes:
    lay your pieces out like you want -- but without the center piece (the circle). Sew two of the "blades" together, then two more and two more -- and keep sewing till you have them in a circle. Now lay it down on a backing piece (yours has a blue background) Sew those pieces to the background around the outer edges (with the 1/4" tucked under). Now sew the center circle on. You can hand stitch all those pieces on and hide the stitches or do like they did. Finally, sew the backing to another backing (maybe with batting - up to you) with the RIGHT sides together -- be sure to leave a 4" or so opening on one side). Flip the right sides out, close the opening. Now...what I'd do is sew with the machine or by hand an "echo" stitch around the Dresden plate -- so you're sewing all the layers together.....basically, quilting it. Hope this helps!!!!

    Hi Bonnie --- I'm waving at you from Georgia, but my son lives in Ottawa --- he keeps me up to date on how cold it has been there this winter. Welcome to the quiltingboard - you will make a lot of new friends here.
