Mugrugitis- when you start making little tiny tiny quilts, 5 by 8 inch-ish, and convince people you need them for their coffee cups because they're so much fun to make.
If you are wondering why I have been ignoring, not leaving bloggy comments or just in general been MIA this holiday season, here are some of the reasons why.
A mug rug with happy MM ta dots, happy (crazy) binding, and 100% linen, based on an idea from Pin. Sew. Press.,
the artsy/Kona cotton look here, hoping it would look manly enough for an office,
the woodsy look here, using some Modern Meadow and some Wild Thyme,
the 1 inch postage stamp style, remembering Heidi's postage stamp along,
with backs that remind me of Hallmark cards,
an extra Little Red tissue holder, based on Sew Mama Sew's tutorial by JCasa *handmade, really fast and cute,
and kitchen towels in a classic look of toile.
Which makes me insanely tired looking at it all. Plus three quilts, the third of which I haven't even shown you yet! (Kool-Aid girl I'll make your mug rug soon! ;) I did like trying different styles in the mug rugs without much commitment.
The postage stamp mug rugs came together really well and fast so I am making a 20 inch square postage stamp, a block a month, my personal goal, from this ribbon candy. It's all Christmas looking fabric! I'll have to wait. My Kona has been backordered and will be coming at the end of the month.
Anyone want to trade lots of 3 inch plus-ish strips in modern bright Christmas fabric? I am actually looking for some Funky Christmas by MM in particular too. I am on a fabric diet for at least a few months and I want this to be super scrappy.
Oh yeah and my bloggy anniversary has come and gone as of December 26 so I need to have a giveaway soon- fabric...books.. handmade? I have to think about that one, but I have a birthday party and family visiting the next week so you are just going to have to wait and see! :)
UPDATE: This will be added to Sew and Tell this week. If you have time, I would really love if you visited the quilt called Dancing Coins that has became my daughter's. I also shared the top with you in March and you might remember seeing it during Show and Tell too. That was my second post to this group! I hope you like it.
