Spring Garden PlacematDesigned By Julie A. Bolduc
This placemat is fun and easy to make and would be a great take along project since you make all of the motifs first then whip stitch them together. You could also make an afghan with the motif used in this placemat. You could also make matching coasters by leaving off the 4th round and putting on a round of sc in white.
