I made twelve, count 'em , twelve, place mats to give to the in-laws for their anniversary.
Here they are all together and tied up to give.
They really were not that much work. I think they would have been a lot harder if I didn't have a walking foot for my sewing machine. It would have been had to do the top stitching to hold it all together with out that tool. They have peltex 70 on the inside which makes them fairly stiff and heavy. I hope they enjoy using them as much as I enjoyed making them.
