I've had a goal this year of using up a pile of leftover charm squares that have accumulated over the years. It's been working pretty well until it came to purple month! There just aren't any purple squares in that pile!
But I did find this interesting fat quarter that I had stashed away - why not make my own charm squares out of it?
Mix it up with a little yellow - that should work, right?!
I've been making the placemats 12.5 x 16.5, and
this many squares will make a 16.5 inch block.
So, I trimmed it at the top and bottom, to end up with this design!
In the same pile as the purple fat quarter was this fun one that made the perfect backing.
So now there are six!
But wait... there's more! What to do with those leftover strips that were cut off the top and bottom of the original block? How about a mug rug?
Perfect for my new favorite sunflower mug!
