BOM Placemat

One of the guilds I belong to is doing a block of the month, but after so many years of doing these, it becomes a question of what to do with these blocks. So, this year I have decided to make placemats. Thanks to 3 Creative Studios for the idea. Check out their blog for some really good ideas and freebies. Anyway, the first block is "paper pinwheels". It had a plain 6" center so I decided to replace it with a pinwheel, added borders to the sides and this is the result. I won three, one yard pieces, from the same line in 2003! It's wonderful fabric but really didn't go with anything I had or any project on my to do list. Sad that it had to wait so long to become part of something but I'm happy with the way it turned out. If you look close there is some of the salmon-y color in the little flowers.

That looks great and a way to 'finish' the block into something practical. The colours look lovely.

Hi Bev,
Just wanted to let you know that I'm sending the Ada pattern to you ( small competition on my Wattlbee Blog)...congratulations & hope you enjoy making her. I'm pretty sure your address was lost when we had computer problems in the I'll need to wait for that.
Hey, the gelatine mat looks really interesting. Can you explain more on that topic/ I for one would be interested.
Best wishes
