    This last week I made a table runner, 4 placemats and 4 napkins for a local school auction. ( just finished today)
    These blocks were actually blocks I was going to throw away..but decided to put them in a table runner to donate b/c unless you are a quilter you wont see that they don't match up! I used scraps to make everything...

    I actually took a class where the lady was teaching this block ..but didn't have the right dimensions ( that is why none of the blocks lined up so I put the sashing and cornerstone in the middle to hide the imperfections some) and none of us know the name of this block..if any of you know what it is or where I can find it ..that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking!

    This is the table runner I donated to the school auction today.

    This is the placemats..of course all napkins and placemats were different because they were scraps..but I forgot to take a picture and then called the gal I gave them to --to send me the pictures of them..hehe...so I don't think this is the prettiest one..but hey they are perfect gifts! I also made a gift bag for all of it to go in ..for shopping..didn't get a picture of that..I hope it helps the school.

    I love your sashings and corner stone in the middle of your "off" blocks! Genius!
