Quilt Finish: St. Patrick's Placemats

You might think that these are a little late, but I prefer to think of these as very, very early for St. Patrick's Day 2018.

I found some cute shamrock fabric and wanted to make placemats for my mom.  I quickly quilted them up using a decorative stitch on my home sewing machine as recommended by Pat Sloan in her Teach Me to Machine Quilt book.

Since Pat has never let me down, I used her machine binding technique, my FabuLux Hint of Lime thread, and some life-saving binding clips to finish the binding:

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Mom -- a little early.
