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.
