Trying Again


I used to blog regularly, but with working full time with two children has really wiped me out. Plus, Instagram allows me to easily post pictures of my WIPs and get instant feedback from other quilters. 

Still, I'd like to document my finishes, and keep notes about my projects so that I can look back on them, especially the gifted FOs. I've loaded the Blogger app on my iPhone and iPad. I have no idea if this will help me post more frequently and I guarantee more typos, but I'm going to give it a try!

Today I finished two mug rugs. These are to be gifted to my colleagues who have been covering my clients during an extended absence from work. In one, I appliqu├ęs some hexies that I made forever ago in an English Paper Piecing class I took with Johanna Masko at The Workroom. I echo quilted around the flower. The other uses some Comma mini charms. I improv pieced this one and stitched in the ditch. I really love this mug rug! My colleague loves grey and yellow so I'm sure this will be a hit!


Over the next few weeks I hope to post some of the projects I made this summer. In the meantime, please follow me on Instagram
