Blue Placemats

They're done! Machine pieced, machine quilted, machine bound, washed and ready to go to New York as a wedding gift for our nephew and his wife.

Binding is my least favorite step, but with eight bindings to do, I got lots of practice. By the seventh and eighth one I'd figured out a few things (preapply with pins, don't finger pin as you go) and they were turning out better with less frustration. Hey! An old dog can learn new tricks. :cD

Shhh... it's a surprise.
