21  Quilted Mug Rug in Quilting: Completed Projects by playswithneedles on: September 06, 2010 05:24:00 PM
Here's my first mug rug (roughly 7x7 inches), I made it as practice for someone on another site. It's much improved over my first art quilt I made for someone here on Craftster. I still have to work on the corner of my bindings, but the curves are SOOOOO much better. I'm usually a "I'll try to figure it out on my own" type of person, but I've discovered it helps to read how to do it FIRST :-)



And here it is with a big mug on it, although the photo makes the mug look GIANT.



Fun!

Thanks! And here's my Sunray:



I forgot that I wanted to try the bonus Sunflower Square, so I'm going to do that one before Fudge.

Finally, here's my Big June Square. I liked doing this one! Forgive the poor photography, they both are full squares, even though they don't look like it!



And here's my August/Pavo. I did this one as an 8 incher though, instead of the full 12.



I tried the July, but it must have been too late in the evening, as I just couldn't grasp it. I hate it when that happens!

Speaking of of 12 inchers, I think I'll try the Ravelry July Square "More V's Please." Has anyone done that one? Also, I was looking at the recent issue of the Interweave Crochet at the library. They have a couple of nice 12 inch blocks in there. I had to photocopy them so I can try them out. I liked the Lotus Blossom pattern by Robyn Chachula and the Picture Frame pattern by Lisa Naskrent. I also made a copy of the Woven Arrowheads by Lily Chin, I thought it looked like it would make a good dishcloth.

I have five more 12 inchers and eight more 8 inchers to go on my aunt's blanket. I'm shooting for the end of the year. I think I can, I think I can! Then I think I may retire from the block CALs and join the granny a day (so I can make myself a colorful granny square blanket!) and also venture into vests and sweaters. Have to wait for additional $$ though, as I'd like to move from acrylic to cotton/linen blends.

I've also become obsessed with virtual quilting bees  Grin

Here's my Edwardian Fancy. I need to do the Sunray block first, then on to the Fudge!



I need five more 12 inchers and eight more 8 inchers for my aunt's blanket. I'm shooting for the end of the year for a late Christmas gift (I get time off around Christmas so I can put it together). I think at that point, I'm going to retire from the block CALs and possibly do the granny a day for a blanket for me. No way I'll do one a day though, I can tell you that now!! I also want to make myself some wearables, which will be a first.

I need to wait until I get some $$, perhaps a Christmas bonus or my next raise (?), as I'd like to move from acrylics to cotton/linen blends.

Here's my granny stripe block! Forgive the unwoven ends, I save those fun things for the very end. The upper right corner looks a bit wonky, but it really isn't.

yay, I finished my May square! I tried to control the waviness, to no avail! But I really like the texture in this block and it was a fun one to do.



I'm going to start the June block this weekend. I think I'm going to like this one too. I'm loving all the texture - loops and holes and back post/front post!

Update on my aunt's blanket:  I now have seven 12 inch blocks finished and eight 8 inch blocks finished. I need three 8 inch for every two 12 inch, so I'm a bit behind in the smaller blocks. But I'm making progress and (because I missed the May birthday) I will surely finish by Christmas! Thanks to everyone who has helped make this happen  Smiley

I've finished my April (? - I thought they were May, but I think I'm even further behind than I was thinking!) blocks - Briar Rose is on the left and One Pink Hippo's on the right. I added a few rounds to OPH's to make it 8 inches. Warning - I'm not a good photographer and I never weave my ends in prior to taking pics!



Tonight I'll start on June's stripes. I think I'll make the bobble stripes in cotton. It would make a good washcloth for a Christmas gift.

Update on my aunt's blanket: I now have seven 12 inch squares done and eight 8 inch. For every two 12 inch, I need three 8 inch, so I need to get caught up or even ahead in this crochetalong! Thanks to everyone who has helped make this possible!

I'm a bit behind, here's my 6-7-8 bonus square.



Tonight I hope to start on the April squares - I'm looking forward to trying One Pink Hippo's!

Thanks to some very generous Craftster friends I'm able to continue making squares for my aunt's blanket. Thank you!!

I'm a bit behind, but not too bad. Yet!
Here's my March square. I modified it because the first attempt ended up way too wavy. This one is better, but still has a touch of waviness. I hate that!



And here's the March ravelry square in progress. I'll finish it tonight, but wanted to photograph it during the day.



And thanks again to some very generous Craftster friends for their donations. I am now able to continue on making squares for my aunt's blanket!!

Here's a picture of my granny hexes (laid out haphazardly on my yoga mat). I did have another row on all of them in a neutral color (Vanna's linen), but I took it off. They are now only 4 inches across - very quick to make! I still may decide to outline/connect with a neutral color, I haven't decided yet. Ideas or opinions?
