    Do you use invisible thread to sew them together?

    Thanks for posting that thread. I wasn't sure how you ladies were making those and now that I see the rulers it makes much more sense.

    I love that, PTP! I'm going to steal it and use it. :wink:

    Riversong, your mats are lovely. You are really having fun making these, aren't you?

    Could you do me a favor and show how you finish the backs, please.

    I just finished making a mat with the batting as the pattern and now I'm stuck on how to finish the back. I did not 'frame' my octogons, and am unsure how to finish. Thanks.

    I don't know how you would do the un framed ones...Mine are put right sides together and whipstithed by hand,but you can zig zag them by machine too....

    So they are reversible? I get it. Kinda slow here, never have done these octogons, but sure are fun to take along to places and with little effort.
    Thanks.
