LTRTCWSA - Placemats - 10/5/12

Another episode of -

Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed - ;))

I played with the placemats again -

Marked my guide line with chalk -

Stitched the binding down -

Trimmed it -

Here you can see how it’s trimmed to about 3/8” past the center rectangle -

I placed the seam in the bottom right corner -
Hopefully it will not be that noticeable -

Used my handy-dandy hair clips to hold the binding in place -

When it’s all done -
It’s pretty close to the size of my other placemats -
And that works for me - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


Linda said...

Very Nice! And that backing fabric is so pretty. Are you finishing the binding by hand or machine?

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks! I'm finishing the binding by machine. I like to sew it to the back - fold it to the front - and then stitch it down with a decorative stitch - ;))

Linda C said...

I wondered the same thing as the other Linda---hand or machine? You are going to have some pretty placemats come holiday season. You or someone else if they are intended as a gift.

Hooray for almost a finish!
