So as I was perusing my LQS today, looking for *only* a few fat quarters of grey fabric, for my potholders I'm making for the potholder pass, I spied a fat quarter bundle of Central Park by Kate Spain for Moda...it was like a reflex, before I knew it, the fat quarter bundle was in my hands, and the internal debate began. No, I do not NEED this fabric, but just look at it! In the end I couldn't resist, and this glorious stack of fabulous fabrics came home to live with me.
I rationalized that I know I will have a few baby quilts to make in the next few months, and this fabric would be great!
Thank you everyone for your super kind words about my mug rug! I did as I said, left it for the night, and when I went back to it this morning, I decided that I really liked it, and its simplicity, and more importantly I think my partner will like it.
Heres a picture of the back
Once I had the front and back complete, I layered it together with my batting, and pulled out my basting spray to hold things together. Well, apparently I was a little overly ambitious with the basting spray application, because it seeped through in a few areas on the linen and left some dark spots :(
Again, this is an award for the crafty blogging "little guys" with less than 300 followers. Whats so cool about this award, is that you get to pay it forward!
I already mentioned Cindy from roseroomquilts, Jolene from BlueElephantStitches, and Dolly from Dolly'sHome, if you haven't checked them out, you definitly should!
I know that Kati, from From the Blue Chair nominated me earlier this week, but I have to mention her here! She always has something fresh and modern that shes working on, and her lattice quilt tutorial is certainly worth checking out!
