This past weekend, I made fabric placemats for my mother-in-law's birthday. I used a black and white polka dot fabric on one side and a red holiday fabric on the other. They turned out really nice.
I really like the holiday fabric because it isn't too loud and HOLIDAY'ISH.
The black and white polka dots look great on the other side.
Four large placemats.
Oh, and a patchwork trivet to match.
I quilted it in a large diamond pattern in white thread. I think they would look great on any table and I hope she likes them!
