    I use a pattern called Table Graces (QuiltWoman.com) With so many beautiful holliday fabrics it gives you a chance to focus on them and add accents.

    If you like to applique go to www.fatcatpatterns.com

    There's a wealth of WONDERFUL ALL FREE patterns. I periodically make a donation to her website because of all she gives away.

    If you go to www.quiltcetera, there is a very easy placemat pattern, using 4 fat quarters & makes 4 mats. You don't even have to bind them.

    Here (if the pic loads!) are a couple samples of some I have made this year. The one on the right I sandwiched with the backing and batting and thus, assembled and quilted in one step. I put binding on after I took the photo. Hope it shows up!Name:  Christmas Placemats.JPG

    Placemats are adorable. My daughter in law up here in TN was all excited when I showed them to her she is just learning how to quilt and knew she would be able to complete several of these.

    Thanks for all the suggestions and pictures. I have looked at everything that is posted and I think I have it figured out. Unless something catches my eye. Seems to take me forever to make up my mind. :O)

Top stitch about 1/2 from the edge around the placemat, I then do some kind of quilting. Works great and is simple.

    Thanks for posting this. Sounds like what I need to do to make some everyday placemats.
