TGIFF~A "Little" Finish!

I wanted to try "quit as you go" and so I decided to make mug rugs for me and my six co-workers, and here they are!
They were a hit! (mine is the all-polka spotted one :)) I did one sample, quilted myself "into a corner...but not in a good way" and kept it pretty simple after that first try. Thanks for stopping by!

Sew Cute Tuesday~Quilt As You Go

Sew Cute Tuesday In between my big projects, I like to do little projects. I wanted to have fun with scraps, and decided to practice Quilt-As-You-Go. Had a lot of fun...made everyone in my work group their own mug rug...they will be so thrilled (rolling my eyes on their behalf)
Main lesson: don't forget the backing! Had fun, used scraps...Win/Win!

WIP Wednesday ~ Let's BEE Social Mini Medallion Finish ~ Almost!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Sew Fresh Quilts
So, I've been working on Mini Medallion by Corey Yoder of, and it's posted on the Sew Mama Sew blog, under PARTICIPATE > SEW ALONGS, and here's where I am:
There is supposed to be another row of squares on point around it, but I decided I was happy with it at this size. Maybe my first mini-quilt for my wall? Just need to bind it :) My daughter is working on a special quilt for her husband. Happy little clippings, reminds me of Bob Ross and his happy little clouds :)
And this is His Majesty, Sir Frisk~A~Lot on what he feels is his rightful place
Looking forward to a long weekend at my sisters, Julie at with lots of quilting going on! Will finally get to lay out my latest big project! Stop by again to see it! Thanks and Happy Quilting!

WIP Wednesday/Let's Bee Social: A Cushion For A Princess~Mini Medallion Pinwheels

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Sew Fresh Quilts
My daughter wanted this chair from IKEA for her room, but found it to be too hard on her posterior. "Mom, can you make me a cushion for my chair" came the call, and so...I did :)
She loves foxes and bow ties. I have around 10 fox fabrics hanging around in my stash, so it was quick to whip up. The back is a simple turned edge with velcro on the top/bottom so that the cover can be taken off and washed.
I hope you can see on the black fabric! I've also made all of the half square triangles for my mini medallion quilt, I put a quarter near them for perspective. Those babies are 1.5"! Now to sew them all up into pinwheels:
Thanks for stopping by!

TGIFF-A Quick Finish!

This is for a friend whom I've never met in person. He is facing a pretty serious surgery, and will be in the hospital for a few weeks. I felt compelled to make him a quilt for healing.
Keep him in your thoughts, won't you? :) ~Diana
