Nine Patch Place Mat

Version 7
A place mat made using six 6"x 6" Nine Patch blocks is easy enough to make but not all that exciting.

I've  been experimenting with quilting designs to see what can be done to spice it up a bit.

At first it was a chore but I'm starting to enjoy it.

Today's design is based on two very simple elements.

That go together like this:

The stitching down the side is optional. You could break thread in the top right corner and start again in the bottom right corner instead.

If you do stitch down the side you may want to do it so that it gets covered by binding afterwards.
