Valentine’s Day/Saint Patrick’s Day Placemats

Scott here again, this week’s quilt project is a set of four placements that Deanna quilted on her long arm quilting machine and bound using bias binding.   One of her customers requested a set of placements with different material on either side allowing her to get twice the use out the placements as she chose seasonal fabrics.  Deanna used this idea on this project.   On one side, she chose, Valentine’s Day fabric and the other side chose Saint Patrick’s Day fabric.   The placements were quilted with a cross hatch design and what I would call scalloped edges.   I will ask Deanna exactly which pattern she used in a subsequent post.    She bound the placemats with material cut on the bias.   Cutting the binding material on the bias is a great way to add a bit more flair to your quilted projects.   We plan on producing a video on how to cut binding on the bias for posting to YouTube.   Anyway, back to the placements,   she machine bound the edges and they look awesome.   Here are some pictures.
