My goal for 2021 is to create a placemat each month which combines the RSC colour of the month (which is blue for April), the Table Scraps Challenge, and includes some miniature blocks. April's placemat is a celebration of blue Ohio Star block variations.
These are the larger 6" star variation blocks. These blocks are made with leftover HSTs from my Mosaic Mystery.
And I made 3 sweet little 2" star blocks. Working with miniature blocks really makes my heart sing!
I set the mini stars on point and placed them in the centre of the design. The machine quilting is a very simple stitch in the ditch, and a single wavy line in the outside border.
The finished size of the placemat is 17" x 14".
