I made a patchwork table cloth for Christmas (it is in the loft for now, will get it down next week with the decorations and take a pic) and wanted some placemats to go with them. I bought a piece of holly patterened fabric off Ebay which was quite a bargain and I already had some red fabric left over from the table cloth so made these placemats. I made the rectangles the same size as some we had already and then hand quilted them with some wadding and some plain backing fabric and put the edging round. I have made 8 of them as even though we can only sit 6 at our table properly, if my daugther's family come we have seven of us and thought might as well make it 8 and have a spare.
