A few weeks ago I made a set of 4 place mats, using the pattern called "Take 4" (designed by Cary Flanagan for Something Sew Fine Quilt Design), and 4 fat quarters of beautiful brown batiks. These orange batiks were still in my stash, that I'd bought from the Festival Of Quilts in 2011, so I thought I'd make another set...
...this pattern is very quick and simple to piece together, and I used a variegated Sulky Gutterman quilting thread. These were quilted really simply, just stitch-in-the-ditch. I always use Pellon wadding for table runners and place mats, which is a felted polyester, and it always lies nice and flat...
...and here are the finished place mats. I used the striped batik for the binding, and I'm really pleased with this set.
