August OMG 2017 Goal Update

The number 8 was drawn by Patchwork Times, as the monthly goal for August.

My number 8 goal was to do something with some machine applique floral sample blocks.

I squared the blocks to 12-1/2″.

Triangles were added to set the blocks on point.

After squaring and setting the blocks on point, I decided to turn them into autumn placemats.

I kept the quilting simple; straight lines, echo, and meandering (I’m not making Van Gogh or Picasso art pieces after all). Here’s a look at the back:

I’ll be gifting these placemats…it feels good to have turned the blocks into something useful!
