Oh What Fun...!

We're headed off to spend the day doing Christmas baking but since I consider this the official launch to my holiday season I thought I'd show you the finished Log Cabin Christmas placemats. They seemed particularly appropriate to post today because I've lined them with a red that has snippets of the song Jingle Bells scattered across it, along with some bells and holly.












It's a great fabric, more garnet than bright red, which is what I tend to prefer, and it nicely suits as a backing. I used a variegated blue/green thread to quilt them.












They are bound with a green on green leafy fabric that I've had for ages and also love. I thought I had tons of it and was planning to bind the Log Cabin potholders with it as well but I guess it's time for Plan B as I only have a small little strip of it left.












Never knew I needed Christmas placemats but I've got them now, and the nice part is that they have the Official Cookie Tester's seal of approval. Oh ya, and they are finished before midnight Christmas Eve....M
