A mug rug and a winner

Despite all your support yesterday for seeing my seemingly never ending quilting on Sunset as she progresses, I found something new to share. I actually made this little 7.5" mug rug in October for the mug rug swap at my Modern Quilt Guild meeting but I forgot to share it here. It is another in the cycles series. The circle is a Kona aqua and the background and binding is Essex Linen.


I used one of my favourite Sweetwater text prints from the Mama Said Sew line on the back and it is matchstick quilted with a variegated blue Superior King Tut thread.

I want to make more of these and also placemats - I think that they would look so modern and crisp on my lovely wooden dining room table. I wonder if I will ever tire of making these bold and stark circles.

And congratulations to Cynthia from Cynthia Brunz Designs, who blogs at Quilting is More Fun that Housework. She is the lucky  winner of the layer cake from the Fat Quarter Shop. Thank you to the Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring the give away.

Thank you to everyone who left comments on the giveaway, I enjoyed them all but there were just too many to respond to individually.

I hope you have a great Friday. I can hardly wait for the weekend, when, in addition to a lot of day job work, I can get back to the quilting on Sunset and also finishing my small share - 2 -  of the slab quilts for Calgary.
