Photos of the finished placemats

Since the placemats have all been delivered to their owners, I thought I would finally post pics of all the different designs.   A couple are missing but it's easy to get the idea by looking at these photos. They were lots of fun to make and I loved working with the fabrics.   I did a meandering stitch for the quilting and also attached the binding entirely by machine. I had so many to finish that hand-finishing the backs was out of the question.   I think that this project can be fun for any time of year and I look forward to making different kinds of placemats for gifts and for my husband and I to use.
