This is my first post.  I hope I'm in the right place and my pics show up!

I made these placemats for a Winter Solstice gift for my parents.  I'm VERY new to sewing so please be kind.   Grin

This is the tutorial I used

I'm loving pre-cut squares!  They are so useful, LOL!





I messed this next one up...

And I tried to fix it...




I'm really loving them, even though they could look a lot better.   Wink

These are really lovely. You have a great sense of colour.  I have been contemplating making something similar for Xmas presents. Wow, you have inspired me.   Grin Thanks a million for posting these.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

I really like these, especially the bright colors! I think most people would be too busy admiring the layout of the colorful section to notice any irregularities in the sewing on the rest of it.  Smiley
