I did get the backing done for Liz's Sashed Postage Stamp Quilt yesterday, late afternoon. From there I took a break...for dinner and stuff...then worked on a mug rug. I was actually hoping to get all three that I need made, but only one was accomplished!
It's a really cute one...but I had a few issues that slowed me down.
here. This one is 8" x 8" on the straight sides.
My issue came when I wanted to add the solid aqua to the fanned printed material section. After finagling and cutting two different aqua pieces, I finally improvised...and it turned out rather well.
I wanted to try some curved pieces to find out if I wanted/needed to take Rachel H.'s (Stitched in Color) Curves class come the new year. I think that I might be taking the class :) Chad even asked if there was a ruler I needed to do this and if that's what I want for Christmas...so I think I'm getting a Retro Flowers/Drunkards Path Template! He really is great about my sewing...
I also have another ruler on my list to my in-laws that can be used to make circles...I think the new year will be full of curves!
After the mug rug, I moved on to basting Liz's Sashed Postage Stamp Quilt.
Today, I think I may work on the other mug rugs and start tracing flowers onto the quilt.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you;
that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things,
may abound to every good work:
2 Corinthians 9:8
God will make sure we have what we need...especially to do that things He wants us to do.
