Design Wall Monday

A few weeks ago I pulled out a UFO I started in October 2008.  I had about 100 of 400 blocks made.  I put those block on the wall to do a little playing for motivation to get the other 300 blocks completed.  I like this setting but will not do this one as I want to start another project similar to this one with this setting.
 This is the setting I planned to make, just straight rows.  I've always wanted this style of quilt on my bed.  I love the alternating red and green squares.
 Yeah!  I got all the blocks made.  I pressed the green ones and started sewing them into pairs.
 I finished my Rouge River log cabin quilt top. It's now in the to-be-quilted pile.
 Here is a mug rug I made.  The loop can hang the mat when storing or it can used as a cup marker by wrapping around the handle.  This is my test mug and I plan to make more for Christmas gifts.

-------------------------- Type-u-later,


  1. I love your red and green quilt. Who says those colours can only be used at christmas?? And there is an applique block down at the bottom of one of your pictures that really caught my eye!! Very pretty!!

  2. Oh I really like your red/green blocks. And especially like the straight row settings you're going to use.

  3. Wow, so many beautiful projects! Love your rouge river quilt top!

  4. 400 blocks in one quilt, bless your heart!! What fun to play with the different layouts. Your Rouge River quilt is amazing!

  5. I never thought of a combination cup marker/mug rug. What a great idea. Your rouge river log cabin is beautiful.


Your thoughts are valuable to me so let me know what you think.
