    Can identify with you! So admire the "crafters" who make 20 and 30 of the same item to sell at craft shows. Once I've spent all my creative juices on a project including time expended in sewing and ripping and sewing and ripping to get it JUST RIGHT and to match the picture in my mind I'm over it with the first one.

    Never! I'm too easily bored, have to have the diversion of something new.....that's likely why I have about 50 UFOs and partially assembled projects in my 'hoard', come to think of it, LOL!!

    I probably would do this also. Even making 8 of the same placemats would be too much for me. Also this way she would have 3 different possible arrangements when only using 4 placemats.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    Too late! These are octagons so it's a bit more complicated - I could have switched the fabrics around, but had just enough - and almost not enough - to do as I'd first done. But ... good idea!
    So many quilts, so little time.

    Okay done! I thought I got the instructions for this on here, but I just searched and didn't see it. Seems like the original tute said these were "Hexagons" and obviously they are octagons. Didn't find this under either word. But ... even if the stitching might be a bit different and measurements might be off a tad they are still a set and Mother will love them. The last picture is one I gave her for Christmas. The set of 4 with napkins is the set I finished today.

    I can see why she wanted more of them. Very pretty.

    Very nice - and aren't you glad they are done! That gives one such a sense of accomplishment! Now you can move on to a fun project.

    The more times I do something, the better I get. Practice makes perfect.
