Placemats are done

I was sewing along last night with others in cyberspace.
I kept working on these trees with scraps of green. They made up lovely placemats.

There was a group sewing day today and I finished off the placemats.
Got them bound in different ways.
The lighting from the glare made the photos hazy.

I followed this YouTube tutorial.

Here they are finished and I'm happy to say I really like the rolled over edge where the borders end up @ 1.25". After quilting the backing was cut at 2.5" larger than the actual placemat.
The edges turned and sewed. I'm really happy with how they look. I'm sure the recipients will love them too.

And here is the reason for blurry photos...

I'm linking up with Val and her Tuesday Archives with PLACEMATS.

Those trees are just charming, Jo, and the wide binding makes a very nice frame. Enjoy using them!
