Project updates

March 1, 2011


After much procrastination I was finally able to put together some mug rugs for a (very) belated birthday gift. Everything came from my scrap bin – the center came from a larger piece leftover from another project. I was able to cut 4 rectangles about 5″ x 8″ from that piece, so will have 4 mug rugs when I’m finished. Now to find some fun mugs to go with.

I also finished the binding on my Land & Sea quilt started November last year (front, back, binding from top to bottom). The machine quilting was done by Joan Read.

This was made with Holly Holderman’s Fun Flowers and Robert Kaufman’s premium bleached white muslin for all that sashing. The backing is pieced from leftovers and more muslin. I needed ½ yard cuts of all the prints plus lots of muslin to make a quilt big enough for a twin bed (about 64″ x 86″).

If you want a pint-sized version of this quilt, Alissa also has a tutorial for the Sparks Baby quilt posted here.

And finally, I’m keeping up with the CHQ quilt along. Our group will meet one more time on Friday to finish our quilts.

    So many projects…so little time. Love the mug rugs; good idea for a bazaar. Your new web site is wonderful – easy to navigate.
