Hugs and Holly Placemats

Item 5 Palcemats
I have now finished the christmas present for a family of four, shipping off to the US.
The placemats are made from Hugs and Holly by the Wooden Bear (Moda).
The blocks are 4,5 inches
For the corner stars I used a tutorial at Jo's Country Junction.

Here is my updated list, slow progress again:
    MAKING CHRISTMAS 2013
  1. Finish Kaleidoscope quilt as a Christmas gift for my sister, top is done. Status: No progress.
  2. Finish cutting Misty Pines, piece as Christmas vacation project. Status:No progress.
  3. Finish Santa Quilt to cover fuze box at home, a few blocks short yet. Status: Started.
  4. 2 panels done in Oh My Stars! project.
  5. Christmas present for Rob&Sue (fabric from sales rack at Kathrine's Quiltestue). Must be done to mail off early December. 
  6. Knitted Shawl for myself.
  7. Knitted headband for somebody.Status:No progress.
  8. Knitted hat for Uncle Nils. Pattern(in Swedish), but cast on 20 stitches.
Added:
  1. Added:Pieced and finsihed Marius baby hat.
  2. Finish hat by Tulla.Status:No progress.
  3. Another knitted hat  as 8), Status: almost done.
  4. English paper piecing project. Status: Started
The paper piecing project I added to have a portable project, and a project that hopefully does not make my arm hurt (Trying to take a break from knitting).
I am still debating about the design of this project. I have only one light fabric, unsure if I should try to find another, or does that one fabric used as squares keep it together? Buy more of light fabric for frame?
Added 4: English Paper Piecing

Så flott mønster på dette håndsømprosjektet. Dette må jeg prøve, for som du kanskje vet, så elsker jeg engelsk håndsøm.
