On a happier note than my last post, I finished machine sewing the binding onto my flower placemats. I just looked back and realized that I never posted a picture of them, so here they are without the binding:

There are 6 of them, 2 in each color way. I have hand-stitched the binding to the back of 2 of them so far and plan to work on the rest of them tomorrow at Quilting Ladies. Here’s a look at one finished placemat:

Placemat 1 (1024x706)

Since that was done, I used some of my scraps to piece these blocks. The block is called Plaid and is 10″. (It’s the September 15 block for those who have the perpetual quilt block calendar.) It uses 2.5″ squares and 2.5″ by 4.5″ rectangles, and since a lot of my scraps are those sizes, it’s a good one for me. No definite plans for their use yet – just playing with fabric.

    Aah! There’s nothing quite like playing with fabric! (-:
    I really like these placemats and the two color ways. I may have to play with some fabric myself and copy them. Ooops, but I have a quilt to work on!

    The placemats look great! The top photo with them lined up end to end is very cool.
