Next month the Mug Rug Club will graduate from making mug rugs to something larger: Place mats. This place mat is from the book Quilt Fiesta by Cheryl Linch.   Sew Cal Gal blogged about it yesterday. The book is avilable for purchase at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. This place mat gives you the opportunity to try prairie points, appliqué, and free motion quilting without tackling a huge project. This colorful place mat makes me think of spring, vacation, Mexico.

This bright place mat is made from scraps.  The creator can practice appliquéing circles, quilting, binding.  This design can be changed to meet your likes/dislikes, i.e., less circles, more circles, replace circles with hearts.  You are the creator.
This place mat will give you the opportunity to use up those orphan blocks. In a previous post, I used half of this orphan block for a mug rug. Above, I used the other half. What fun to use orphan blocks in your own unique way.

The Attic Window Quilt Shop Mug Rug Club starts next week (three monthly sessions). Join us in learning new techniques and make fun small projects. Check out the class calendar on the sidebar or call the shop for further details and to register.

The Noble Wife has a darling free stitchery pattern. Check it out.

Stay Positive!
