Mug Rug for my Swap

I was so excited when Karen invited me to the fall mug rug swap on Ipernity. You can see some of the beauties here. These ladies are so talented! I am going to be the lucky owner of a mug rug soon. I have no idea who my partner is and I don't know if mine knows who I am either. Anywoo, I just wanted to share my mug rug progress with ya'll.

I found this applique of owls here.
Owls are just so cute. Now, hubby wants me to make a owl wall hanging. So, I will be working on that eventually.

I think I am going to use the bright orange polka dot for the binding.
I am going to add some leaves to the top branch and quilt it up a little. I normally don't sew on the weekend, but I couldn't wait to cut these out and put them on the background. The branch on the right is free style. That's the only part that isn't in the template. Just to give you an idea on the size, the bigger owl is about 2 7/8  inches and the small one 1 7/8 inches. I'm about to go sew on them some more.
I'm finally taking  the rail fence  quilt is off the frame. I am going to name it Lemon Squeezy.  I am going to quilt the borders at my regular table.  Hopefully, I will be finished with it soon. My octagon quilt is almost ready for the blocks  to be sewn together, and I'll be able to pop that on the frame. Once the tension issues and thread breakage was over. It was awesome!!!   My face hurts from smiling too much. LOL!
Blog at ya later. ;)


  1. Oh my goodness, these owls are too cute! Love them:)

    1. Thanks! They turned out pretty well. Now, I just have to figure out how to stitch them down. :/ I may have to do some by hand.
