Tumbler Quilt

My husband requested a lap quilt he would like to give his boss this Christmas. Since he would pay for the fabric I couldn't refuse. Actually I already had these tumbler blocks cut from charm squares in reds and browns so I only had to purchase the borders. I like the way it came out. Top done. Now to get it layered for quilting.

Mug Rug Swap

Last month I signed up for Michelle's Mug Rug Swap on Quilting Gallery using the provided patterns. I finished mine this weekend and will be sending them off today. My swap partner likes reds and browns. I did needleturn applique and am not that good at embroidery stitches. Hope she likes her rugs.

Back to Quilting

I am so happy to finally be back sewing and quilting on a regular basis again after going through a move into our new home. Our "living room" is my sewing studio and the kitchen/dining area is our living room. After a trip to Michigan to get the rest of our sewing furniture...I am back in business.
