Fall Embroidery

I have been enjoying the weather lately before it turns snowy and this is a project that I created awhile ago.
Using my off white scraps, I created this place mat size table cover. The squares are only 2.5" so they do use the smallest of scraps. After piecing, I did the embroidery with several layers of stabilizer because the design is very dense(43,398 stitches) I the added the border and then since it was small, I quilted just around the border and the design. Added a binding and was done. Could have been quicker if I put the batting, backing and front with right sides together, stitch and then turned.. This is a closeup of the Deb Strain design.
