A few weeks ago I shared a sneak peak at some projects I was working on. They were teacher gifts for our VCQ Celebration retreat weekend. Since that weekend has just passed, I can show the whole pictures now.
These are 'mug rugs", about 9 x 12. My friend Elizabeth stitched the machine embroidered pineapples. I added the strips and quilted the 9 mini quilts. This was good practice quilting on the new Baby Lock machine. I also tried a fusible binding technique I learned from Cynthia St. Charles' blog,
This is one of the "Pockets to Go" from a Terry Atkinson pattern. Three of us each made 3 of the cubes, which we filled with various treats for the teachers. Now I need to find time to make myself one!
It was a great weekend, wonderful classes and teachers, and lots of fun activities. More later..
