Below are pictures of the mug rugs that I have put together
 for our "Mug Rug" exchange
These are some of my "woven fabric" projects that I made
into mug rugs.

Here are some of my other woven projects.
I teach this technique and it is a super fun class.

Here are my oval "Mug Rugs"
 The above two rugs are created with some of the cuts
from Accuquilt's "Go" die "Heather Feather #2"
The hummingbird rug came about after I 
took a machine quilting class and worked
on my thread play

I will post the other participants rugs when I have 
accumulated them all.  So stay posted!

Here is a little angel that I created recently.
Pattern is available on my 

Hello to All!  Getting ready to do a Make & Take class tomorrow 
with some fun projects using circles. Here are a few that I
will be sharing with the gals. These are quick and fun to make.
We are going to create gift jar tops with this one.
These can be made to use as coasters to add a bit 
of Christmas to any room. I have had mine for years, 
not as coasters and actually not as anything.
Not sure what I want to do with mine,
will let you know when I know.

Here is what I have done with this technique
on my "Darling Sue" pattern

This one is actually 12" in diameter and very dimensional. 
My plan is to adhere it to a shaker-box to
 be filled with goodies. I am making one with quilting fabric
and will make a gift box filled with quilting items for
 one of my special quilting friends.
These are fun ornaments to make and look great on anyone's tree.

My next Make & Take class will be working with square's so stay posted to see
what will be offered!

New Pattern Available

I made this quilt years ago and I brought it out to show others 
and they asked for a pattern. Well, I wrote one and it is
 available for purchase on my website 
I had to make some changes to my personal quilt due 
to copyright reasons. I replaced the "Fancy Sue" 
in the center of the quilt with my own 
"Darling Sue" pattern. If you choose to want to do 
"Fancy Sue" she can be found in 
March/April 1997 issue of Quiltmaker.
Here is "Darling Sue" by Quilted Inspirations

School Pillow

An Afternoon Project

Any message can be put in the middle, Mrs. ? Class, I Love My Teacher, etc.
In making these pillows, I used fusible bias tape maker, "Leaves Galore" ruler,
RicRac, a ruffle attachment for my Janome and fusible batting. It turned out
to be a quick, fun project. The pattern will be available on my website in a
day or two so be sure to check in at

I have now made 25 travel cases as welcoming gifts for an 
Oct. quilt retreat that I am hosting.
Sure hope the gals like them, I sure do!

I have also been doing something fun that I intend to 
make a quilt for one of our local shows.
Have any of you ever heard of the book titled
 "The Hundredth Dress"?
Well, my hope is to find 100 different 
30's fabrics to make 100 dresses.
