9-Patch Wall Quilt

 This is my daughter's work-in-progress 9-Patch Wall Quilt.  Since this picture was taken we've added heart appliques to the solid pieces.  I can't wait until it is all finished.

Sewing Machine Cover

I was in serious need of a sewing machine cover but didn't want to go buy a boring white thingy so I searched for a pattern to make one and here is what I found: Sewing Machine Cover

Her tutorial was super easy, especially for a newbie like me. My daughter helped with the sewing.  She did an awesome job!  I didn't have enough of a solid material for the back so I just used my leftover strips, either way works!

Husker Mug Rugs

I met this wonderful woman who offered to teach my daughter and I to quilt. So I took some time off blogging and making jewelry and got busy quilting. I had tried sewing once before and that was years ago to make a shirt for my sweet Grandpa Jim. I did that with the help of my mom. Well it just was to hard so I never tried again until recently.  Now I'm absolutely in love with sewing and quilting.  Projects so far: one twin sized Log Cabin Quilt, many Mug Rugs, and my daughter made her very own Wall Quilt.  Photos coming soon! 

Mug Rugs?  They are mini quilts.  You can use Mug Rugs as a coaster or a little place mat.  The ones pictured here are my most recent. I had made a few before using cheater binding but was not to happy with them so I decided for these I'd use double fold binding.  And I was much happier with these.

I bought all this Husker material before I knew I was moving to Oklahoma.  So as soon as we are more settled into the new place I will be making some more to sell at my Etsy Shop.  The two pictured here are SOLD already. 

(1) Backing Piece
(1) Front----Patchwork Scrap

Size:  There's no wrong size.  You can make it however small or large you want.
