I ended up with 12 blocks. I could have made a lot more, but settled on 12 four inch blocks, as laying them out 4 x 3 is an ideal size for a placemat. I made some binding out of some more scrap - parts of an old shirt to be precise - and this was the result.
There's a lot of history in it too, particularly in the blues. I remember Mum having a dress made from the stripy fabric, from the floral one next to it, she made me a pair of pyjamas, and the large-ish blue piece in the centre was left overs from fabric used to make what was once our kitchen curtains when I was a child.
Happy memories :)
Until next time. x
