Nautical Themed Placemats

Lynda brought me a panel of 8 nautical squares and I spent a little time trying to figure out what I was going to do with it.  I thought I might be able to make a quilt from them but then I figured that I would have to do a lot of calculating to come up  with something so I decided that the individual squares might look good as placemats.  I have been looking for some male orientated patterns and fabric and decided that these might just do the trick.

I had the pale blue and the brown wood grain in my stash and really liked what they did to the panel squares.

I ran out of pale blue so I thought I would try some orange polka dot that goes well with the brown border on the square and my binding.  These will be donation placemats for Meals on Wheels.
