New Table Decoration

I think I've been reading too much "Practical Guide..."  this is the 2nd of 3 projects, with one more in the works. 

Anyway, it's a placemat/table decoration.  Made from one block of the "sunspot" pattern.

 And here it is in its new home....I really wish the sun was shining.

Fenced In Quilt

I finished this one a few weeks ago.  I used the "fenced in" pattern from Oh Fransson!'s book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork

It looks great in my new spare room.  And of course I had to make some matching pillows. Some stacked blocks on the right, which I've seen too many places to count here.  The one on the right was made using the mod mosaic pattern from Oh Fransson! just seemed right with this pattern.  I do wish I had quilted the mosaic one, but it will do for now. 

Quilt stats: 
Dimensions - 76" X 76"
Fabric: Sanctuary by Patty Young for Michael Miller (Seafoam Colorway), Kona Solid - Medium Gray
