I wanted a quick gift so pulled fall strips and pieced the mug rug background. Then I used fusible applique for a couple of leaves and acorns. It is quilted, bound and ready to give.
I also paper pieced these mug rug tops using an Eileen Sullivan pattern. The bottom leafy print will be backing.
Two large quilts are sandwiched and ready to quilt; however, my machines have had issues so they have had to wait. I prefer to use my Bernina 185 and the super quilter’s table it sits in but it needed service. It got a good cleaning and service Wednesday and is ready to get back to work on projects. I hope to start some quilting on one of the big projects today. I also spent a few hours cutting leader/ender kits of Bonnie's "Carolina Chain" blocks and a couple other scrappy blocks.
For the past year I have not had as much quilting to post on this blog. For the future I hope to spend more time with granddaughters. The oldest is learning to sew and she is working on piecing quilt blocks but that still means I spend less time sewing and quilting. I am considering whether to keep up the blog or use other avenues to share what I’m making. I’ll let you know what I decide.
Enjoy some time sewing and quilting.
