To make a long story short... I was planning on making some placemats for a coworker for her wedding.  I had decided on making them black and white since they goes with anything, right?  Because of a delay in ordering and the postal strike, I wasn't able to get all the fabrics I wanted.  I have a ton of left over reds and blacks from the kaleidoscope quilt and thought maybe I'd use the scraps for the placemats.  I made one place mat top up this evening.

What do you think?  Mr Mouse said it's a little bold, but my mom likes it.  Do you think it would be appropriate for a placemat for a wedding gift?  The gal I'm planning on giving them to is trendy and fun and energetic, and I think it would suit her personality.  But I don't want to give it to her if it's too crazy.

Please leave me a comment with your opinion!  Every once in a while the comment form doesn't work.  In that case feel ree to send me an email!  I'll make a mug rug out of the scraps, and I'll randomly pick from the comments and emails and award the mug rug to the winner!
