Back in the saddle

Having been away from my sewing machine for too long, I needed a quick project to 'get my eye back in'. 
I found some log cabin blocks from too long ago in the cupboard. These were made with the intention of using up my fabric scraps and making a large quilt. 
I have forgone the idea of a quilt, and decided to make the blocks up as place mats - a much more realistic option!
The details if you're interested: blocks are freezer paper foundation pieced, using measurements from this tutorial from Melly & Me. Finished block size = 5 inches; finished sashing width = 1 inch; bind cut 1.5 inches; finished placemat size = 19.5 x 13.5 inches.
