Earlier this year 2 of my sisters and 2 nieces got together with me to work on Vintage Holiday by Thimble Blossoms. I posted about our visit and sewing here.
My sister Polly has been busy making her blocks into mug rugs. She sent me her blocks ready to quilt.
When I had a few spare moments I would work on machine quilting the blocks into little rugs.
Then I stitched left over bindings to the blocks.
Polly's blocks/mug rugs turned out really darling. They will make great gifts for her friends at Christmas.
I'm planning on a short visit south to visit my sister again soon. I am excited to return the blocks all ready for her to hand stitch the down binding. Think what a great gift they will be with a mug and some hot chocolate mix. I wish I had a head start on my own Christmas gifts!
PS I swiped my Bloglovin list of unread blogs clean. I am starting from scratch. Maybe next week I can actually visit a few blogs.
