The “Jugs” Rug

In June we started a mug rug swap at Quilters Anonymous.  QA is a chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild (AQG) and the one I’m a member of.

I didn’t make a patriotic mug rug to swap in July, but when they announced that “summer” would be the theme for the August swap, I already knew what I’d bring.

This is the first block I made from the Bikini Quilt Pattern by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.

Even though it’s larger than your usual mug rug, I thought it perfect for the Summer themed swap.

Can you see why I’ve dubbed it The “Jugs” Rug?

Thanks for stopping by.

An April Finish

Yep! You read that right. I finished this in April. And drafted a blog post about in May! I kept telling myself , I’ll finish the post “tomorrow”.

Well, tonight is finally “tomorrow”!

Behold, my Christmassy Disappearing 9-Patch. Made w/a bunch of Laurel Burch and my favorite color, Red!


I quilted it on a friend’s long arm. This long arm business is harder than it looks.  A long arm is definitely on my “Hopefully Someday” list.


I used a pantograph for the first time.  One called Tortoiseshell.

And I finished it w/my favorite faux piped binding.


Thanks for visiting!
