Mug Rugs for Christmas Presents

I made two sets of mug rugs as Christmas presents last year for our new friends here in Waldport.  They are marine themed, but all different.  These "mini quilts" are quick and a blast to make!

Here are the ones I made for Mike and Pam:

Here are the ones I made for Pat and Vivian:

Carol Doak Yahoo Group Block: One Sunny Day

I am posting this as a reminder to myself to finish this mini quilt.  It is paper pieced and measures about 16" square with the border.  I plan to cut the border down to 1" and to add a more interesting fabric as a second border.  I figure that will be easier than unstitching it!   Then I will quilt it in Free Motion and finish it as a wall hanging.

Carol Doak Royal Mini Quilt Challenge

This was a mini quilt challenge on Carol's Yahoo Group.  I cheated on this one ; it was supposed to finish at around 12" square, but I doubled the pattern size.  It makes a very nice table topper in my living room.  

It is paper pieced from batik scraps, and I quilted it in Free Motion on my Janome Horizon 7700.

Carol Doak Mystery BOM 2012 - "What's Black & White & Read All Over?"

This was Carol Doak's Mystery BOM in 2012-2013.   The patterns were shown in red and white, but I had been wanting to do a red, black and white quilt for a while, so that is what I did. The red tone on tone flowers and white (small polka dots) are mostly the same fabric throughout, but I used many different "black" fabrics.  For the back, I did some intuitive piecing to use up some of the scraps, which I learned from Angela Walters.  I quilted it in free motion with my Janome Horizon 7700 and bound it with a leopard black and white print.  I named the quilt "What's Black & White, and Read All Over?"  like the bubble gum riddle.

Craftsy BOM Sampler Quilt is Quilted

After completing this quilt top in the 2012 Craftsy Free BOM with Amy Gibson,  I signed up for Leah Day's Craftsy class to quilt it.  I love the way it turned out and it is one of my favorite quilts.

Craftsy 2012 BOM Quilt Top finished!

I have signed up for Leah Day's FMQ class on Craftsy, which shows specifically how she quilted this.  Can't wait to start!   But want to make husband's wool shirt first.
