May Friday Night w/Friends

I decided to join Cheryl's Friday Night With Friends again this month. I decided to give the gold and navy placemats a second try. The second time around I was able to build them with more of an assembly line process and I nearly finished them before I had to go to bed on Friday Night. I spent about two hours adding the small borders on Saturday.
I obviously still need to assemble and quilt them, but that will have to wait for another day.

I chose the colors to coordinate with our Wedgwood Cornucopia dishes.
I made this placemat design in Electric Quilt. It was inspired by a square knotwork block. I uploaded the file to google if anyone else would like to make the design.

And now that I've finished these I believe I can rip out four seams on each of my earlier versions and fix them by trimming a small amount from the wider portion. Then I'll end up with a total of six placemats though the gold will be different. I didn't have enough gold fabric to use the same one for this second try. I have got to stop buying one-yard pieces.
