What materials did you use? Leftover blocks from a paper piecing lesson.

What are you most proud of? My friend said "good riddance" she was glad to be rid of a project gone wrong. She didn't like the direction her quilt was going and had no desire to continue. I revamped them into six placemats by removing a border or two and trimmed them down to placemat size. The fun part was returning them to my friend who now claims they are awesome.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When your original project takes a turn for the worse think about making it into something different; placemats, pot holders, table runner or maybe tote or gift bags. When ideas fail you give them to a friend who will view them with a new prospective. Maybe she'll return it as a gift to surprise you.
