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.

More Wonder Wallets

I seem to be famous for making Wonder Wallets.  I have made some for Lynda and someone she knows has seen hers and asked me to make her some.  It was Lynda's birthday last week so I thought I would make her a new one.

Lynda likes roosters and I had some fabric that she had purchased a while ago.
The other 3 are for her friend.
