I gave in to the *S* blocks! They are now my leaders and enders project. So far I've only been sewing together leftover hsts. I can't wait to start some new projects and play with some new scraps!
Eat with Joy placemat pattern. All of the pieces of the blocks are made out of 5 inch charms. I used some long loved fabric from my stash. These were the colors and types of fabrics I bought when I first started quilting. It could have something to do with the infamous blue and yellow star quilt made by Alex Anderson.
Then I played with some Christmas charms and made another placemat. This time even the borders are made from charm squares. I think this design would work better with a charm pack where all the prints coordinate. Or using multiple charms of a couple of fabrics. i do like how the Santa prints sit in the design.
Now my wall is empty again as I start to work on finishing some small projects.
