Last winter, I mounted on my longarm a length of fabric with printed panels for eighteen place mats. I treated this as an opportunity to experiment with different crosshatch designs for place mats. I created simple crosshatching, double cross hatching, double diamond cross hatching and a cross hatching with an ivy border. My favourite is the double diamond cross hatching.
It took me a while to get the binding applied and either top stitched or hand stitched. However, after what seems like months, I have all 18 bound and ready to be given away as gifts.
