    I have pic's of a couple of runners -- don't have pic's of the similar placemats. I used some of my Christmas coins from the swaps and sort of made up my own pattern. Very easy.

    I made reversable place mats for my sister. One side was a machine embroidered flower with patchwork blocks around it. One set was a pieced heart appliqued to a background and 2 1/2" squares surrounding to make it 12"x18".

    just love your placemats, by the way I know you're in hiding but the picture looks like Positano on the Amalfi coast in Italy,
    am I right?

    I am so glad that you sarted this thread. I love placemats and table runners. Every one is just beautiful. A placemat or table runner is "instant gradification"!

    I'm working on a spinning star set - but put it down since I was working on them with a friend of mine and she no longer quilts with me weekly... she started to home school and I haven't really heard from her since :( She was a great sewing buddy... but anyhooo... I thought I'd wait for her to finish them up but I am losing faith that she'll be back to finish them with me...
    Thanks so much for your site! I am making placemats for Christmas and this was like being a kid in a candy store.

    I bookmarked this so I could go back and look at all your placemats. I've been needing ideas, also. Thanks.

    They were made from a panel that had the big flowers so I cut out the individual flowers, added some paper pieced leaves, a border and made 8 placemats and then used the rest for a tabletopper.(We have a big square table).

    Sorry but the colours look a bit blah in the photo's, they are really quite bright.
    OOOH!!! I want these. Beautiful!!!

    Looks like most people do what I do - make a placemat with the designs on the edge so they aren't covered when you put the plate down.

    Denilynn, I love you placemats and your stash around them. :lol: All of the mats and table runners are beautiful. I think it motivates me to finish some of mine.

    I've made a few placemats over the years, but these are my favorites. I used the large print (horse, sheep, pig parade) for all the fronts, and the smaller prints (sunflowers or roosters) for the backs. Please excuse the wrinkles and folds -- they've been stowed away all summer.

    I love them. String quilting, right? I'm doing some now, to get rid of a lot of "strings" that I have built up over the years. 8-)

    I don't have a photo, but I recently made some string place mats---a good way to use strips and an easy way to make neat place mats. If you layer you backing and batting and then do a stitch-and-flip pattern with your strips, you'll have it pre-quilted and reversible--just have to add binding. You can make your strips vertical, horizontal or -- as I did--on a diagonal. I Your strips can all be one size or the width can vary... have a round table and wanted to squeeze a couple of extra people around it. I make square mats.---oops just saw someone had added a picture of pretty string mats.

    I give up. I never understood the reason for a place mat. They are so beautiful I can't use them, so I used them as decorations. Plus I use them on top of a table cloth. please enlighten me. Thanks

    I never used place mats when our children were growing up. Just had a table that could be wiped off. Since then, we bought a beautiful table and even though it has a nice hard coated surface, I still don't want to scratch it so I use placemats and sometimes a table runner. Sure is easy to set the food on the table for meals and not have to worry about getting a hot pad. Not sure which child I am saving the table for but when they get it, it will be nice. :-)

    I love your table runner. What are the dimensions of it & where can I get that pattern.

    Thanks
