Sew Saturday

A couple of sewing projects to share with you.   First up is a mug rug to thank the hostess of our StampNation Dream Team retreat.  She opened her home for us to stay and create at and I wanted to send her a little warm thanks.

I made this pattern up myself, can you tell?  ;)  Those little leaves were a stroke of genius.  I used fusible web and die cut them with my big shot!  How cool is that?!  I think I will make my first "quilting" video soon showing you some fun things you can do with fabric and dies.  

The South Sound Modern Quilt Guild is working on their next charity quilt.  We are making an improv piecing quilt to enter into the MQG challenge.  Here is my block above.  I don't think I will ever master improv piecing, but I am trying.

Heather, I had never heard of a mug rug before but I love it! The material, design, and quilting are so pretty. The gold leaves are a gorgeous finishing touch! I am sure that Catherine's mom will love your gift! I am very excited to hear that you are thinking about including videos on quilting. I have never quilted but always wanted to learn. I have enjoyed seeing your quilting pictures. Thanks for sharing this project!
