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!
I am linking up with OMG at Elm Street Quilts. Take some time to see what other folks have finished for the month!
