The fourth of July in our area was a rainy day so I used it as an opportunity to work on a few fall projects.
Fall is my favorite season and orange/black is my favorite fall color combination. I focused my efforts on making projects using my scraps in orange and black.
I’m on a log cabin kick right now so I created a table runner. My log cabin blocks finish at 8 inches; I cut the strips to size before sewing making it easy to chain piece each block. After completing a round I used my log cabin trim tool to square up each block. Once all of the blocks were finished I tried several layouts but liked this one best.

Last year I won a copy of the April/May 2017 edition of McCall’s Quick Quilts from one of my favorite pattern designers Abigail Dolinger. I used her pattern from the magazine “Travel Plans” to create these scrappy orange/black his and her place mats.

Another pattern “Charmville” also created by Aby is one of my all time favorites. This time I used the pattern to create mug rugs for us. Charmville was published in the February/March 2014 edition of McCall’s Quick Quilts.
