February's colour of the month is RED. I have plenty of red scraps left over from the red and white quilt that I made last month and have lots of ideas on how I might use them.
But this week I am cheating slightly. I have made a scrappy project but it doesn't follow the colour scheme.You might remember that I showed you this pile of bright fabrics the other day. I have been busy turning them in to a mug rug for the Quilting Gallery SwapBasically I've been randomly joining up some of the tiniest scraps I have, using a lovely black and silver starry fabric as sashing. I kept joining pieces together until I ended up with this........ which then got trimmed down, straightened up, and bound until it looks like this.....My first ever mug rug, had lots of fun in the making of this, and I love bright colours so think I probably ended up with the perfect swap partner. I have one more to make, which will be totally different to this one, then I can get my rugs sent off on the journey to their new home.Not much stitching will get done this weekend as I am away visiting family but I do have a couple of days off work next week so hopefully I will indulge myself then :)
