Babushka mat.

This is my second project for the new year.  It started out in December when I was busy making up table mats and runners from my Christmas fabric stash for last minute gifts.  I made a block with the blue stars fabric and white fabric, and was going to embellish it to make a mat, but I couldn't decide what to do with it, so I just put it aside.   The other day I was looking for something else and found the machine embroidered Babushka girl patch.  When I held it against the blue and white block, it seemed to belong, so I added the silver ric rac on each side, then the borders, and voila, another table mat! 

Then I remembered some fabric I bought a few years ago which would be perfect for the back.  If you are wondering why the back has no border, it is because I used the 'envelope' style of finishing it off instead of the usual way.
