    Very nice! Prettier than anything you'd find at the store! I've been telling myself for several months that I need to do the same. I've got to get on the ball with that now that Christmas is over.

    Your fabric in your placemats is stunning. Dinner time will be a special treat. Got any small scraps left????? They would be perfect for a small wall hanging. Very lovely.

    Very pretty and you did a good job. Seems my table always has a quilt to be quilted on it, no need for placemats.

    Great colors, and a very good idea. I make place mats for shower gifts, try to match color to their dishes, or use holiday designs. And we use places mats at every meal, here. Way to go, Gail

    That's a perfect solution for using up those scraps. I am always trying to find ways to use up mine.
