I finished a UFO!

I really don't remember when I first started this project.  It was at least 2 years ago.  Maybe 3.  I found the tutorial here.  Rather than make a quilt, I decided to make place mats.
 I actually made a set of 7.  Odd number, I know.  I think I just kept making them until I ran out of fabric!  I used Moda's Happy Camper fabric, along with some Katie Jump Rope.  I still have a little of those that I have been hoarding  saving.  I might need to make a quilt with them one of these days.

This one has been washed and dried.  Actually, we have been using it.  
I love how it got all crinkly.  And I like the fact that the raw-edge applique is starting to ravel.

I believe this was one of them I just finished last night.

And here is one more...
It feels good to have them finished after all this time.  And I am happy to say that I still like them!
I believe I started out with charm squares (5") and sewed a 4" circle onto that.  Then I cut them in fourth's, and sewed them back together randomly.  
I am hoping to have another finish by the end of the week!

These are great. I love the colourful look. Good on you for getting them finished.

These are adorable. The different borders give each one it's own distinctive look.
