Winner and my challenge project

This post is 2 fold.
One to announce the winner of the hot pad kit and to show you my challenge project.


The winner of the XL Hot pad kit is Jen of The Quilty Home!
Congrats. I just emailed you :)
*****
The Columbus Modern Quilt Guild participated in a challenge for this month's meeting.
Sue from Quilt Trends gave us each a FQ of a Christmas fabric.
I made a fussy cut ornament mug rug with mine.

I spent just an evening making it. I had planned on attending the meeting last Thursday.
Well sometimes life doesn't turn out you think it will. I ended up having to treat a patient for an emergency and I didn't leave my office in time to drive 70 miles to Columbus.
I had to forego the meeting this time.
I was/am bummed.
I won't be at the December meeting either :(
On an up note:
Did you notice my mug? It was a gift from Quiltmaker for submitting my block for the 100 Quilt Blocks vol.2 .
And here's an  up close of the fussy cut ornaments.
I used matching thread to detail the ornaments.
And brown thread to make the 'hangers'.
Okay I am off to continue binding.
Oh there's been progress. I will show some tomorrow!

Awesome mug and awesome that your block is on it! Woo hoo!

Have fun binding. I'm doing the same thing. Slow going this time around.

I love the hot pad.. how many layers of batting did you put in it? I'm always curious about that... don't want to burn the table :o)

We missed you Vickie!! :( I LOVE the mug rug! People had some cool ideas - it's amazing to see all the different ways the same fabric can be used. Wish you could come in Dec - we are having a Mug Rug Swap Social! But, ahhh, there will be more! Hoping to catch you in the new year!

Congrats to Jen! I love the mug rug and the mug :) How cute! I understand about not being able to make your meetings. I've had to miss some quilting activities lately also.

I liked your blog tour hot pad tutorial the best. I love your mug rug and I think your block in the quiltmaker magazine was so awesome looking when they showed an entire quilt you can make with your block. Thanks for all the quilting things you show on your blog.

Congratulations to Jen. Love your Christmas Mug run (just wish it was entered in the Christmas Quilt Show). Just delightful. I also love your coffee mug with YOUR block. How cool is that?

Love the ornaments! The fussy cutting paid off as the ornaments appear to have dimension. I just don't know where you come up with so many creative ideas.... My mind just can't seem to do it, as hard as I try!

Jen said...

Thanks Vickie! I sure do love this hot pad idea! That mug is darling! I love the detail!

Your mug rug is too cute and I'm sorry you missed your meeting. Bummer. But I AM going to make myself an XL hot pad or two. I'm going to dig in my stash and see what I find! I do have some Christmas fabrics that I have no idea what I'm going to do with them. A hot pad would work!
