This is some of the things I made this past year. They are reversible. I did the quilting on my Phaff and, and as you can see, I still have a long way to go... The octogon shape is so darn easy and fun. You can make it just about any size you want so I tried a couple of different sizes.

This is the same ones only reversed. I may do a bit of quilting in the center of the placemat as it tends to bubble a bit... This is the winter or Christmas side.

This one is a bit bigger and is also reversible. I was using left overs just to see how it would turn out. This is winter.

This is, as you can tell, Halloween. It's a bit tricky to get the borders to match up on both sides... But I'm not to picky so it works just fine. I try to use a thread color that works for both sides. These can become very addictive...

My cat Rosie liked the Halloween one so much that I had to make her a couple. My camera run out of room so I just got this one. Now that I've downloaded all the pics to the computer I can take more!! And Rosie loves her 'quilt'.

Those are neat Gloria. I love doing the hexagon ones too. Most of mine have been given away - wish I had taken pictures...

This is a Christmas one made with Laurel Burch fabric. I love Laurel Burch stuff!! So bright and cheerful. Yes, Mittsy, my Fiesta Ware goes with most everything. I love the colors. I decided to use a silly Christmas cat for this pic. It is almost as much fun taking pics as it is making this stuff... Almost. lol

This one I have let Rosie and Zena use. I could make each one of them one for everyday of the week and still not make a dent in my 'cat' fabric stash... I want to make an 'I Spy' quilt from my cat fabric stash. One of these days...

Neat mats. How are you doing the outside binding? I can see the outer edge and then a bit more central on a parallel, but are you using a fabric strip or another technique? I know that you can do borders by sewing face to face and then inverting the piece on a qyuilt, but have only done bindings even for the baby quilts and the one runner I did.

It looks like they were pieced, then turned then stitched to do the quilting of the layers together, no binding.

Yes, mittsy, you are right. It would be easy to quilt them and then put the binding on, but this way works also. You could add another color with binding. Hmmmm... I may just have to give that a try. lol

I'll check on the pattern for you. My e-mail is across town from my house... I use my husbands computer for online stuff. We're separated so we live about five miles from each other. We get along soooo much better this way...

SewSassee, I found the pattern you are interested in. It's called 'Quick and Easy Table Topper & Runner' #103 designed by Genni Lehmann of Lehmann Quilting www.LehmannQuilting.com phone 651-322-7701
e-mail bleh482160@aol.com I bought the pattern at the quilt store I was working in here in Arizona. They are no longer in business... ;( That was about a year and a half ago that I bought it. It was a very popular pattern so hopefully she is still making them. I think I'll look it also. Good luck!

SewSassee, I just checked out her web site and it is there. Oh, my, there are a lot of things there... I didn't look around much, just to see if I could find that pattern. Didn't want to get into trouble!!!

Gloria, do you have something you would like that I could trade you for some 5 inch blocks of your kitty fabrics? I'm working on an I-spy , collecting fabric for it now. I have cat fabric, and I have some cat & dog prints as well. Let me know, OK?

Do you want anything besides cats? Cats & dogs? Anything else? I would love to trade with you! If your fabric is GOOD fabric, you might not be interested in mine. Lots of mine was just $4 or $5 stuff from JoAnn's or Wal-mart. I just don't want you to be disappointed if you have higher quality quiling fabric.

Hey, I have stuff from Jo-ann's and Wal-mart also... Because I've 'worked' at three different quilts shops over the years I have a LOT of fabric from them. Have also bought lots of fabric from Hancocks. If it has a cat on it I'll love it and buy it no matter where I find it... So don't worry. In other words I'm not a fabric snob. LOL I also have a few with cats and dogs so more would be just fine.

Pat, 5x5 will be fine, and 5xWOF also. Can never have to much kitty fabric. Well,... maybe... I will start cutting tomorrow. Big smile here!
