Christmas Placemats!

I used a jelly roll of Garland by Cotton and Steel to make these placemats.

I selected 4 strips and stitched them together into a strip set.

Then I took a 60 degree triangle ruler and cut wedges from the strip set.  You get enough wedges from one strip set to make a placemat.  (6)

I love how they all turned out so differently.  I made six!  I had used some of the strips to make the tree cushion covers that I made this Christmas.  The size of the placemats is perfect.  I like them so much that I am going to make another set of six for our ever growing family.  

We had such a lovely snow event a couple of days ago.  It is like a winter wonderland here in our neck of the woods!  
Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all a Happy New Year filled with blessings of health and happiness.  Lots of sewing time too of course!
