Project Quilting 9.5 - A Stitch in Time

Week 5 for Project Quilting featured the challenge to interpret this idiom, "A Stitch in Time Saves Nine," in a quilt!  At first I was a bit stumped, and as the week has gone by I have seen all kinds of wonderful projects shared on Facebook, Instagram, and in blog posts.

I finally arrived at my idea just in the nick of TIME!  I would STITCH up a couple of economy blocks (that's the SAVE part :) made up of NINE scrappy pieces in the colors of my favorite baseball team, the Colorado Rockies!  (lots of NINE involved in playing baseball - nine positions on the field, nine innings...)


The Rockies colors are black, white, purple, and silver, so what's not to like about sewing up a couple of mug rugs made of those colors in polka dots and swirls?!



A view of the back - more purple!


And with some morning coffee!


My mug rugs measure about 7 inches square and will get lots of use here in Loveland, Colorado, where we are big Colorado Rockies fans!
