I needed some quick easy place mats for a Christmas setting, however these can be made with any fabric for any ocassion. In fact, they are reversible so the back could be used too. More about that in another post.

Today I did some experimenting with photos. Someone some time ago had told me how you could melt plastic over photos to help prevent them from fading when adding them to some sort of quilt art, so I decided to give it a try. I printed out a few photos of my grandchildren to get started.

Today I wanted to make some place mats so thought I'd better review what place mat patterns I have. I realized I only had two patterns. One was for Christmas...

Today I was cruising around Jennifer Houlden's blog and looking at all the work she has done in the past six months on her blog. Good for you Jennifer, you have produced a whole lot of interesting and informative blog posts. I pulled a couple of her blocks (with her permission of course) to show you. Click on the links under each photo to get the instructions on how to make the blocks.

Border For Last week's quilt

Last Monday I put together my Card Trick and Grecian Squares, but could not decide on a border. I decided on the one with the dots, third from the left in last weeks photo. I was going to use the squares (4th from the left) but found I didn't quite have enough of that, so the dots it was.

Card Trick and Grecian Square Quilt

Last Monday, I put together two blocks "Card Trick" and "Grecian Square" to see how they looked. They coupled well together I thought so this week I made some more to make a small quilt. I wanted to share the requirements with you. I made a total of EIGHT "Card Trick" blocks and SEVEN "Grecian Square" blocks. The blocks are 6" finished blocks.

Yesterday I made the Card Trick block. To make it easy, I used only squares even though the block is made up of many triangles. We had a few units left over. Sooooo....

This week's block is Card Trick. I've always liked this block but never made it before. It is actually one of the block's in Carol's class "Anatomy of a Block" that I am teaching at Quilt University.

Over the last two weeks I made two Mosaic Blocks. They were the same block but I made them differently. Today I want to take a closer look at them and see what makes them different.
