This and That

I have been trying to make some placemats for the cabin, but after I made them I decided that they were too nice to use there so I think I will keep them at home for a while and maybe they will see there way into someone's home when I need an extra gift.

I just love these blueberries.
This pattern is Fine Dining.

This is such an easy quick pattern to make, called Seeing Squares.

I decided that this one was a good one for the cabin.
It is very country.
This is the same pattern as the pepper placemats but with only 2 different fabrics it takes on a whole different look.

I am taking a class in September by a very talented quilter and teacher called Jackie Black.  She had invented a way of quilting a quilt one block at a time and then sewing the squares together to make a quilt.  I know that there are a lot of ways of doing this and I am really interested in seeing what her method is and how she does it.  She calls it the hinge method.  Because I have to take quilted squares with me I have been busy doing just that.  

I have 9 completed.

These are my squares from the Block of the Month from the website "In Color Order" that I made last year, and have been sitting there waiting for me do something with them.  I thought this was a perfect opportunity to final finish up this quilt.
