Bits and Pieces

Last night I sewed the binding on this little mug rug for my co-worker Val. I'd been meaning to get it ready for her birthday last month, but got busy and didn't get it done. She loves it!

I also laid out the Blush blocks to see how I could put them together. I'm trying to see if I have the colors evenly distributed.

I literally did this after Mikaela went to bed last night, so it was a bit dark. I'll look at it again tonight before I sew them together.
Quilt 003
I think with a border, it will make a great throw quilt. I have plenty of fabric to make a large border and pieced backing, so I think I'm good to go to finish this one this month.

This past weekend I made a quilt for our daycare lady from start to finish! I cut it out late Fri. night, made the blocks Sat. and put it together Sat. night, and quilted it and bound it on Sun. I'm working on the hand work, but since I don't have to have it done until Dec. I'm good to go. It's going to be her Christmas present.

It's that time of year to think about participating in my UFO Sew Down event. This year I'll be picking one UFO to work on and finish. It runs from October 10-November 11th, so if you're interested, let me know. All you'll have to do is write a blog post or Facebook post about your UFO and your progress in getting it done. The one I'll be working on is 3+ years old, but I just haven't been faithful in working on it and that's going to change. Who wants to join me in getting rid of at least 1 UFO??

The mug rug is cute. I hope to get a few done for stocking stuffers this year
