    Those are nice. Did you do the binding as well? I have yet to attempt a circular binding.

    Love them, they remind me of my younger brother, he always carried around a small wooden rocking horse as a baby. Thanks for the memory!

    Very nice placemats. I have bought pre-quilted fabric on special and used it for small projects too. The last set of placemats I did out of it, I cut and did the binding. I then snipped the thread on the back of the pre-quilted mats and pulled it out. It was quite easy and then I quilted them myself by machine around the motifs. You would never know they had ever been pre-quilted after washing them.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Those are very pretty placemats. What a novel idea. You have certainly put some ideas in my head. Thanks.

    Where do you find the neat panels. I cannot find any around my home town.

    Those are very nice. I like how you used dotted fabric for the binding to echo the dots on the panels.
