I pulled some things out of the scrap bins and they happened to be blue strips. I did a quick quilt as you go and added the strips to make a 18x14 table mat. Slightly too big but oh well, it will catch more crumbs and spills! I attempted binding by machine. I should have changed the top thread to a blue to blend in better, but it went pretty well for a first attempt. I'll give it a try again as it was so quick to add a binding this way.
