More finishes coming soon!

This quilt, which is a UFO from 4 or 5 years ago, is finally getting worked on. I had a dozen blocks but only 9 made the cut into the quilt so that didn't leave a very large quilt. But with a good sized sashing and a wide border it's up to 62" square... A good size for a lap quilt..

Yesterday I finished free motion quilting it with just a large meander and today I'm stitching down binding. I should be able to call this finished by the weeks end. 

The weather has been beautiful so I hate to spend too much time in my sewing room but I also don't want to slack on getting scraps turned into blocks. I was able to make 4 gray blocks to add to my rainbow quilt block pile. Looks like I need to make more reds...

Lisa visited us a few weekends ago and needed a gift for her cat sitter. She stitched up this beautiful mug rug/ table mat in no time. And check out the quilting!!

Working on a UFO and getting it finished is such a good feeling. I like your rainbow blocks and the mug rug. Was the quilting done with a walking foot out free motion? It's so striking!

Lisa didn't fmq the mug rug...she used the regular presser foot and the built in walking foot (this is an old German made Pfaff) for the mug rug.
