    Need some help. I have two choices todo the mats but can't make up my mind. I made two runners was gonna make a set of 8 place mats for each runner. But was thinking of mixing up the two which will give me 16 mats. And of course never run out and I could use both runners at the same time. Can't make up my mine need help.
