WIP Wednesday Week 8 2/22/12

This has been another slow week. I had a very stressful week last week and ended up catching a cold that knocked me out! I was on the couch sleeping all weekend, which means I got no sewing done. With Paul out of town again this week, I have had limited sewing time. Mikaela's been going to bed good though, so I usually get about an hour of sewing in before I need to head to bed.
Monday night I pulled out these Sisterhood of Quilters Panels and found some fabric from mom's stash to use as backing. I quilted up two panels and they will become mug rugs for the quilt retreat I'm planning. Retreat is in 9 days, so I'll have to work fast to get them done, but I think it can be done!

The fat quarters and odds and end batiks from my stash will become my winding ways quilt. I think I'm scared to cut into them since I am not really using a pattern and I'm not sure what I'm doing. I don't know if I'll be taking them to retreat or not. It might be too complicated for a retreat project.
Tuesday night I cut apart one panel and made this little mug rug. It uses one strip of binding fabric and looks so super cute. I figure mug rugs next to our machines will be great. I got 3 done before calling it a night. I'll have to work on the hand sewing at work this week.

I hope you are feeling better! The mug rugs are so cute. I'm sure the quilters will love them.
