Moving Right Along!

I used the 12 leftover rail fence blocks to make two placemats for my husband and I!


I really love these fabrics!!  They do all the work in these simple blocks!


On the table runner I quilted it in curly swirls.  But on these placemats, I quilted it in leaves… my all time favorite motif to quilt!!


The backing was from my tiny stash here in the apartment!  A brown print with homey words on it!!


And, the house is moving right along!!


The siding is up!  The shutters are on!  It’s so fun to watch it progress!


And they are painting inside and working on the kitchen.  No counters yet, though!!


What are you doing this weekend?  We’ll be at the house getting estimates on putting in a patio after we close!



  1. wow - the house is looking beautiful. You will really have fun decorating it with new quilting projects.

  2. Oooh, Polly, the house is looking great! I love getting the sneak peeks! I love the placements - and that table runner you made. Very modern - I think they'll look great with your new decorating scheme (which, by the way, I'm excited to see progress when you move in)!

  3. Your house looks fantastic! when are you scheduled to move in?

  4. I love using orphan blocks for small projects, so easy and so quick!
