Laurie's Quilt Nov-Dec 2015

Laurie's Quilt was done in a series of coordinating batik prints which I bought in the U.S. The main block had 17 pieces in it which extended the time for making it. The supporting block was an hourglass block, one of my fav blocks.

New Mugbag for me December 2015

We all know that bags have a limited life. They get worn and stained and just plain dirty and have to be thrown out. Here is a picture of my new bag made for my favourite black and white mug. I thought the outside fabric was pretty conservative for me so I did the lining in a loud zebra print just to provide a surprise when the bag is opened.
