I really liked how the experimental rounded bottom rectangle placemat turned out, but wanted the next ones to be bigger. So I took two half yards of fabric and a half yard of Insulbright to make the sandwich.
I love this Full Line Stencil to quilt placemats....it's a nice tight pattern. The stencil is #30557 Cinnamon Spin.
The light and bright side....
....and the hide a multitude of stains side.
I used Superior Thread's King Tut (Pinecone) on this side and a coordinating Aurifil thread in the bobbin. It really makes the texture pop.
