I have two small finishes this week. I put the little hour glass top together earlier this week and quilted it in a random grid pattern.
I finished the hand sewing on the binding last night while watching Unbroken with my love. I highly recommend this movie about Louis Zamperini. Although the book by Laura Hillenbrand is even better. The back is a very old piece from my stash.
I added borders to just the two ends.
This makes it a perfect size for my coffee table.
Should have straightened those pillows!
My second finish was a kill two birds with one stone project. Kathy Tracy of Sentimental Quilter post the pattern for a cute little mug rug for National Quilting Day. Last fall, I proposed a small quit challenge using vintage fabrics with a friend. Why is it that when the word challenge is used all my creativity flies out the window? I spied this little pile of fabric and used it for this little quilt. Mine is not going to be used as a mug rug! But I think it is cute with one of my vintage toy machines.
I didn’t use all the fabrics in the pile and I added the shirting fabrics. The red “bloomed” when I hit my block with steam! I like it anyway.
I used part of a vintage feedback on the back and my go to quilting a random grid.
