I couldn’t show you then what I was planning with these because it was a gift and my husband assured me the recipient, who reads this blog, would guess right away that it was her birthday gift. Now that the birthday has come and gone I can share.
The pattern is “Around the Table” by Karen Neary. The center mat is paper pieced in sections. Apparently this is reversible too. I was so focused on the piecing that it didn’t occur to me but it did occur to the gift’s recipient.
