I did have two pieces of border fabric left over. They measured 10 1/2 x 15" when I had them trimmed up.
I purchased a beautiful dark blue fabric for the back of the placemat and when I was starting to work on them I decided to put some needle punch in between. Lo and behold, what I had on hand was fusible on one side. Yeah, it made sandwiching so much easier.
At the sewing machine, I slowed down my speed and used the blue line as my guide.
and when I was done I had four perfectly rounded corners
Two placemats heading out to Ronald McDonald House in November. I love these and they were so quick and easy to do. The lovely thing about snowmen is you can use them for such a long time in Canada. November right through until March!
