Holiday Tree Placemats
Part II - My first attempt at Applique. After watching Applique Tutorials, this saved me time and patience. I had fun and would do it again. These are the matching placemats to the table runners that I posted earlier. My cousin, Chris, is sponsoring a winter wonderland for her Church. She is responsible for 2 tables. I offered to help her by making these Tree Placemats. The fabric is beautiful, Holiday Magic - Trim a Tree, by Benartex., & Artisan Batiks - Noel Cloud Metallic Yardage, by Robert Kaufman. I had a lot of fun making these. I didn't realize the time it would take to make 20 placemats. Next time I would buy a pattern for this project instead of using a picture. The pattern does all the quilting math and that is so worth it. Merry Christmas my friends.
