I've made 6 co-ordinating placemats using blocks I made from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 4 (!) that I had a block in.
I made this placemat using the disappearing 9 patch method - and then cutting the pieces even more.
This one is my block with borders added to it.
It was a fun challenge to use these limited fabrics and make sure all of the placemats looked good on their own and like they belong together.
I thought the focus on the pink poinsettias was the best way to incorporate the pink in this one.
Another 100 Quiltmaker's Blocks Volume 4 block.
This one was on my blog several years ago featured with my son. Yes, this project has been steeping for a little while!
Now the placemats need to be MADE - batting, backing, etc. Hence the need to make a list and start to get busy at my machine.
Are you making gifts this year?
Remember I have a few free tutorials that could help you check off your list ;)

Basic Making to Give Guidelines.
Enjoy the season. If making is not possible for you this year for whatever reason (lack of time, money, illness) relax and give yourself permission to not make.
You are the most valuable gift to many folks in your life.
