Placemats for charity October 15, 2012

Today I finished making placemats for”meals on wheels”  Each year I make at least two placemats with a unique design.  This year I used abandoned blocks and a curvemaster foot to add borders which were cut freehand.  Then I layered the placemats and quilted them.  I squared up the placemats and bound them with 1 and 3/8″ strip.  This single binding strip is great for this application.  I have found that a double binding strip is too bulkie.  When you put six or eight placemats in a drawer, they curl up on the edges due to the binding.  If you use this single binding, they lay flat.
