    Hi all. I got the idea for these from Quilter Girl's Valentine ones here http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-36657-1.htm.

    I made seven, they're to sell at a craft fair I'm doing at the end of November. Good practice for mitred corners - there were 42 in total! :lol:

    I just made these Christmasy ones as the craft fair is intended for ppl to buy Christmas pressies. I guess you could make them for any season or just all year round ones, by chosing different fabrics. They're easy peasy - you could make them bigger simply by cutting bigger strips. :-D

    Very pretty! I like that they could also be used for a small table mat or candle mat. With other fabrics they would be nice any time of year. Thinking red,white and blue for July!!

    Thanks for the pictures. They are great. Not long after I started quilting, probably about 1990 i made so many placemats using that method, I had sent them to Florida, Colorado, Wyoming, Ohio, and Arizona. They are fun to make and addicitive. One variation I came up with was to use two fabrics, USing the same fabric on each side of a wider center piece. That way I had a continous ring of fabric. rather than the spider web look. Have fun making them, and I hope you do well at the craft fair

    This would be a great idea for animal themed ones. Also I've got some chicken fabric and I might make some with that - I live in a farming area and chickens always go down well! :-D

    They're beautiful! How much would people pay for one at a craft fair in the USA?

    Beautiful! I'd be afraid to use them as my family is too messy!

    No idea! Here in England, I'm asking 7.50 which is about $12 I think. :-D
