I have another completed project to share!  

A few months back, I started playing with mug rugs (for those not familiar -- a mug rug is an oversized coaster) and I was asked to create a set of placemats using the same design as this one:

Mug Rug







With the mug rug as inspiration, we then went to town sifting through my stash and weeding out fabric until we found just the right combination of fabric for the placemats.  An assortment of shades of green were chosen, as well as a fun backing fabric.  A brown binding nicely tied both sides together.

Once each placemat was sewn and constructed - the hard question was how to quilt?! I didn't want to detract from the pieced front or the fun fabric on the back, so I chose to simply echo the seams on either sides of the squares.
