I have a little double-sided wall hanging (13"x13") that's a wannabe table mat so I had some fun over the weekend and tried out three options for usage. I made it two or three years ago and just love the color combination. The floral was my jump off fabric and then I picked out a few fat quarters from my collection and played till I was happy with the combination. I did traditional 9 patch blocks on the front and free formed the back.
Option #2 looks great under my prayer plant and picks up the colors from the leaves.
Option #3 is where it sits at the moment till I get ready for Christmas :)
Before I forget here's the back of my "mat". I might add more stitching but I'm in no rush to do so.
