    Candi - I love your placemats! Simple enough that I wouldn't be upset if something was spilled on them, but interesting design - and perfect proportions!

    I was going to ask if everyone created these beautiful placements - all the time, money, skills and talents, and then your family and friends actually eat meals on these work of art? I just know that I would be the very first to drop wine, tea, blueberries, oh well, you get the idea. That left hand problem. And my entire family seems to have problems eating without those nasty spills.

    Thanks
    Thank you. It wasn't a pattern, I just kind of put it together. I used I believe ''4.5 squares and 4.4x8.5'' rectangles and just put them together as you see, each row two squares and one rectangle and then put three rows together, easy peesy.

I make square mats.---oops just saw someone had added a picture of pretty string mats.
    I imagine that you start with a foundation of the size plus a little more, that you want the finished mat to be, is that true? Also, do you begin stitching on the strings in the middle of the foundation the way you normally would with any other string pieced block?

    THANKS so much! I'm going to try this with some fall colors with a black background leaf print that has been waiting in my stash for too long. :)

    These are Christmas gift, not quite finished. They are going to be hand quilted around the glasses and bottles..and I think perhaps a sequin or two for the bubbly !!!!!

    There is a fourth one "cabernet" but I couldn't figure how to add the fourth picture.....

    I have two wall hangings that go along with the placemats.

    I used to keep a table cloth on the table...then we got a cat. I make the placemats to protect the table; I tell my son not to worry about them because they are washable. My husband seems to think he shouldn't set his used utensils on the placemats (apparently he doesn't listen), so he sets them back on the table; then I have to clean up the mess he made on the table! The finish on the table didn't live up to our expectations, and having to clean up his messes just makes it worse!

    I forgot to put a table protector on the table when my nephews and neices visited. Just used placemats. One setting at the varnished table has now the perfect deeply gouged outline of where the placemat had sat. The delightful angel used his fork to do it.
