Placemats

My first set of placemats is complete.  Inspired by this post, I figured out that I could make a set of 4 slightly different mats, by cutting 4 fat quarters into strips and rearranging the order for each mat. Then the leftovers became the binding - a different shade for each mat.

I quilted these with a wave design, because the colours remind me of water.  These pieces are actually leftovers from my Waterfall bargello quilt.

I still have some fabric left - enough, I think, for a table runner.  But first, I'm moving on to another set of fabric for some more placemats, in between quilting my latest bed-size quilt.
