Easter table mats

So I liked the mats I made for the table for Christmas and want some now for Easter. I must be a glutton for punishment because our table sits 12 people so that's a lot of mats. I got this fabric and got started today.

I decided to make square mats about 15" square (as I know this fits well on my table) and wanted a square in a square pattern. Using the rotary cutter I cut pink centres 5.5" by 5.5", green fern 5.5" by 5.5" and also 5.5" by 10.5", then the green chicks 5.5" by 10.5" and also 5.5" by 15.5". This includes all seams allowances and gives me a finshed 15" square.

All the cutting is done and I have started on the sewing now.

I got all the pacthwiork sewing done last night and now I need to see if I have batting and backing for them. I'm also trying to decide if I want any applique or embroidery on them...decisions, why can't they make themselves.
