Little Things

I decided to make some small projects this past week. It's nice to start and actually finish something for a change! I found this pattern at work and thought it would be fun to make. Another friend at work is making it too. Just a fun little project. All the Easter fabric was on sale at Joann's. Such fun! I think I'm going to fill it with jelly beans!

I made this mug rug for my daughter. It's the same fabrics that I used to make her quilt. I thought it would look cute in her room. I'm planning on putting it in her Easter basket. I machine quilted little swirls over the large hydrangea. That free motion quilting sure comes in handy!

This mug rug was made from leftover fabric from the twister quilt. It looks adorable in my family room. I told my husband he could use it but not to get it dirty!! I just meandered all over this one.

I've also finished my shawl but I have to block it. There are very explicit directions for blocking. That may take me awhile! I can't wait to show you once I get it all done. I'm off to exercise and then grocery shopping. Enjoy your day!!


  1. Love your projects. I've made several of the quilted small baskets with loops and have been thinking it's time to make some more. Cute fabric for yours!

  2. Love the basket and mug rugs! I love to make small projects in between bigger ones too. I think we sometimes need a break from the big ones... :)
    Wonderful weekend to you!

  3. Your basket turned out sweet...and your mug rugs too!! Hugs

  4. Your little basket is adorable! Love the mug rugs too. Yes, sometimes you have to do a small project to have the sense of completing something. Wishing you a happy Sunday and thanks for commenting on my blog.

  5. I'm making a few mini totes, which are similar to your basket. Yours is so cute, it just makes you smile.


Starting Step Down Quilt

Here are my first 2 rows of Step Down Quilt. The directions are a little bit quirky but I'm catching on! There are 5 rows of blocks...
