So, I finished my place mats and pot holders for the in-laws. :-)  I think I did ok!  Here they are:

I don't like that when they are sewn, the center front isn't connected to the center back in any way.  Its just weird to me.  Instead of free motion quilting (fmq) I decided to try to mimic the flower in the floral pattern.  That is the flower in the center.  These are the "tops" of the place mats.

Below, is the bottoms:
And, here are the pot holders:

I could have done better with the tabs, and I could have quilted them better, but this is what it is.  LOL  I enjoyed making them and will probably make more with this method of quilting (Quilt as you go).
