Quick weekend project. I whipped up this red and white placemat to cover a bad spot on the nightstand. Very simple, just cut strips of varying sizes out of my red and white fabrics, sewed them together. I squared it off, then added batting and a back and did a pillow style finish. Quilted lines down each side of the white strips, and finished by topstitching around the outside in black zigzags :-) I love how well it turned out!!!!
