Ok, SEW...I finally found the solution to my own self-created dilemma (aren't they all, really).

Each Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday where my whole family is together, I use a giant piece of extra wide muslin as the table cloth for the whole day over an oilcloth table cover or cardboard. I put out lots of Sharpie pens and through out the day, dinner, and subsequent card games and desert, we write/draw/keep scores on this tablecloth. 

My original plan was to use these historic memory pieces as quilt backs for the grandchildren. HOWEVER, as grandchildren do they grow up and the kids move to different parts of the world and there they go. The dilemma was then, "who gets which one" and "how can I be fair"? 

The answer? Cut them all up equally and make placemats. That way they can go out into the universe individually and still be a way to share meals together...just not in the same time zone.

So I have been making placemats!

I use spray on fabric glue to fuse the tablecloth piece to another piece of the tablecloth that wasn't written on, then sew strips onto that base and then I run all of the edges through the serger before binding.

Each family received 4 plus Grandma and Grandpa have their 2.

Sew Forth and Sew On!

Deb-Deb, I love your finished Cityscapes quilt!  I'm curious about how you obtained the individual scenic blocks of your city.  I would love to find cityscape blocks of my city area...that would be so cool in a quilt!  You did a great job with your quilt and again, I love it!

ClassicBeauty, thanks for sharing your fun project!!  I will keep this in mind for our upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings!  Your placemats will be family treasures for years to come.

Globug this was a panel that a local QS had. I cut it into strips of 4 blocks each and put Sashing between the rows. I also have another one to sandwich with the same blocks. They are throw quilts for my living room chairs. In various stages of completion for close to 2 years dance

I was wondering how many different colored blocks you are using?  Do they all have the same dotted fabric in them?  What size are the blocks?  Can you tell I just love them already?????

Thanks Brenda! We are having a Block of the Month lotto in my Local Quilt Guild. Each month a different color of any 12 1/2" block you choose. Red, yellow, flowers, RWB etc. So I decided to use this block each month and make one for me also each month. I'll put 12 together for a lap size quilt. Probably will be on my UFO list for 2019  

It is block # 11 in the Moose on the Porch Jelly roll BOM.

No sewing this weekend, but made some progress on the store/school.  Spent a lot more time at a friends than had planned today so tomorrow we gotta make up for it and pick up the pace at the school.

Deb-Deb, hope I'm not overstepping your info. May I add just a bit of info for that panel? 2017 was Canada's 150th Anniversary so there were various designs/fabrics that were offered as a result. This panel didn't zero in on any specific region of Canada.

All my blocks for Floating Diamonds are done and I am now sewing them into rows.  In the picture some of the whites look rather grey.  That is because the paper on the back of them is brown.  I  am also working on quilting another quilt.
