The pieced blocks are Broken Dishes. At least that's what I know them as. They could have a different name in other places.

My mother made lime jello with cottage cheese, crushed pineapple, and chopped walnuts in the '50s. All 9 of us loved it and we 4 girls still make it for our families.

The best thing I've found to remove any kind of glue residue including basting spray is WD40. Spray on, let sit a minute, then wipe off. WD40 leaves an oily feel, so after using I clean the mat or...

Oh, I also use pegboard in the bottom of drawers to keep thread organized. Instead of hardware I use 1/4" doweling so the thread stays in place.
