Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Thursday, February 6, 2014


Even though I haven't had much in the way of finishes in the last couple of weeks, I have definitely been having fun playing with my fabric.  My "String of Pearls" table runner top is put together, and I'm working on quilting it.


In the meantime, I've added another granny square block to my collection

Plus, I made a mug rug for this fun mug while I was practicing square spiral quilting for my String of Pearls quilt.  A little bit festive for February, don't you think?

Do you see the adorable heart pincushion in that photo?  It's the pincushion I got in my quilt group's December pincushion swap.  I just love it!  I wanted to quilt a square spiral in the middle of each of my pearl blocks, so I used this mug rug to practice how it might go.

It's good to have time to play with fabric and ideas.  I've been enjoying every minute!
Linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday this week.
