    Here are some placemats I made for our new kitchen table. My husband likes the back side. He said the top looks like a quilt...

    Very pretty! I like that you put a curve on the ones that go on the ends of the table.

    Very nice! You could have it right way up when no one is eating but then turn to over to your DH's fave side when you eat- save the top from spillages!!

    Lovely work :thumbup:

    Call it your quilted table! Both sides are wonderful and I love your clever idea on the curve. I hope you and your family share many happy meals over these.

    Love 'em! What a great idea to curve the edge of the ones that are used at the curved end of the table!! I could use 4 just like them!!! 8-) BTW: I love cardinals so if you could use some type of cardinal print on one side that would be great!! ;)

    Like the idea of the curved edge. I have 2 round tables but I don't like round placemats because they usually aren't large enough and the rectangle ones don't always fit right on the table.I think I'll give your idea a try. Thanks.
