I made a set of eight place mats for my daughter’s Christmas gift. I used three fabrics from a coordinated line. I simply layered the backing fabric, batting, and front fabric and free-motion quilted the yardage on my long-arm. I used the tree print for the fronts:
I used a floral for the backs:
…and a birch-tree print for the bindings. Here is the right side of the machine applied binding:
And here is the back side of the machine applied binding:
I had some quilted yardage left over, so I made eight napkin rings . . .
. . . and two potholders. The front:
. . . and the back:
The tree on the potholders was based on a paper foundation pattern I created in eQ8. Notice the snowflake “star” and the Christmas tree balls from the fabric selvage! Too much fun!
