What was your inspiration?
First I made a table runner of fruits and vegetables. After its completion, I pondered the idea of making placemats with the same pattern only shorter--placemat size. That led to the question, "Why can't you make it out of smaller blocks?" You can!
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of using what I have on hand and having it turning into something useable.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Go scrappy! Get into that scrap bag and get to cutting out the same size blocks. Lay them out Jenny's way and it will be adorable!
