Mug Rug Swap

I was recently involved in a mug rug swap with my online quilting group.  I was lucky enough to recieve this gorgeous mug rug from Bec . I love the little bunny and the tents, so cute, thanks Bec!

This is the one I made for Rachel.  I forgot to take a photo of it finished so have grabbed this one from Rachels blog...hope thats ok Rach!    Pop over there if you would like to see some photos of it in action...her stunning photgraphs and captivating writing make it a lovely place to visit!

I really enjoyed the process of making such a small manageable project, so when it was my good friend Nells birthday this week, I knew exactly what I wanted to make for her - A mug rug of course!  I grabbed a pile of scraps in her favourite colour combo, and this is the result.  I love the effect of the echo quilting around the hand pieced star.  Happy Birthday Nell!

12 WIP's in 2012

After failing to finish any thing for January, I'm excited to say I did get a finish for this month. "Sweet Dreams" is the quilt I made for Jacintas 4th birthday. It is a single bed size and she loves it <3
Partially quilted...

 Drying on the line...

She slept under it that night...
