It Seemed Like A Good Idea

I wanted to make a mug rug for one of my doctors.  Instead of going through any of the many books and magazines I own, (call me lazy),  I hit the internet.

Some of my books

I found this pattern, Mock Logson Quilter’s Cache.

Then I pulled this fabric. Why? Because my doctor is Asian, and this is Asian fabric.

My lovely friend Izola, @throughmyeyes on IG, sent me this beautiful fabric from Japan a few years ago. Thanks, Izola!

I cut enough fabric to make four mug rugs. And even before I started assembly, I wasn’t thrilled w/my fabric choices. It’s a bit overdone. I didn’t have to use ALL the Asian fabric I own in a little mug rug.20170225_110953

But, I sewed all four together anyway.  20170226_193306

I’ll have to force myself to finish at least one of them to see if I like it any better.  I doubt I will.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time, God bless.

WHOOMP There IT Is! #7

This week’s post is short…and bittersweet.  My uncle passed away and I’m making a comfort quilt for my cousin who is his only daughter.  I’d like to have it in hand when I see her this Saturday at his memorial.
   
I finished the top last night.
It’s Zeus approved.  He’s a 5 mos old English Bulldog who was our overnight house guest last night. 
Tonight I pieced the back and got it basted…and tomorrow evening I shall quilt like the wind.  
I also managed to finish the blocks for the top half of the custom order quilt and put my 49 quilting books in alphabetical order this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  Let’s see what you’ve been up to this week!
