    Place mats

    Does anyone have a good site for place mat patterns. I keep being told that I can just make a small table runner. However, I would really like an actual pattern. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I have some table runner patterns in my quilt books. My table usually has too much quilting stuff on it. No room for place mats.

    Or you can go to quilterscache.com and choose almost any block you like and
    add some borders to make it the size you want.

    Check out www.e-patternscentral.com. If you sign up you will get daily e-mails. They have a section of books of patterns. Right now they are all on sale at about 50% off. I saw books of table runners, which often include placemats. A book often has up to 200 pages, so lots of patterns.

    Besides going online as the replies below suggest, I often make one block, then add a 2-3" border on one side of the block, or 2" on both sides, whichever floats your boat. Good luck.
