I spent a couple of mornings working in the flower beds and yard this week and was too tried to quilt in the afternoon.
I did make a little progress as I pulled out my RWB Improv Lemoyne Star and did some quilting.The center section is quilted. It is difficult to see because I used matching thread. I stopped to contemplate how to quilt the outer section.
My sister used the Morning Star blocks made by both of us and pieced this top. I have it sandwiched
and started the quilting using a swirl motif. The quilt will be a college graduation present for a nephew so I wanted to get busy.
I have pieced a couple of mug rug tops with Bible verse sayings on Printed Treasures fabric.
I used scraps to make one sample Pansy mug rug/coaster.You can watch a free tutorial on YouTube by ShabbyFabrics and download the free pattern. They offer a placemat size and coaster. The coaster finishes at 6 ½” so I am calling it a mug rug.
Enjoy time sewing or quilting if you aren’t out enjoying the spring.
