Last week in my AZ house for the winter.

Am packing up my sewing/quilting projects ready to take home tops for quilting and tidying what I have here so I will feel organized when we leave for home. 

I finished a table runner that is perfect for here in Arizona

This is a mug rug that I sent to my partner for the March swap.  

And I made this mug rug for one of the upcoming swaps.  She wanted a mug rug with a USA theme.  I think this works. 

I made some of the St. Louis 16 patch blocks from fat quarters and got this quilt  top put together.

Now, a few more bits and pieces to finish up and as well, get all the wood furniture oiled, pack our bags and clean out the fridge and pantry.  And hopefully home to the pacific northwest to some nice sunny spring days.

March projects are moving along.

I did a demo today at my quilting group for a block called St. Louis 16 patch.  It uses two fat quarters and makes two blocks.  Great way to use fat quarters!

And I got two tops finished, ready to take back to Canada for quilting in a few weeks.  One is Pow Wow, nice and bright and colourful.

And my Town Square quilt.  Love the colours.

Time for me to start packing up my projects ready to head back to my other home.  But will get as much I can get done in the next few days.  Still have some mug rugs to finish up.

Marching on - time is running out for winter projects

Busy days here in Mesa.  I have been trying to find time to work on a few projects and get the tops ready to take home with me for quilting. 
One of my must-do projects was to work with the 10" orange squares that my Quilt Diva group exchanged last fall.  I played with my straight-out-of-line ruler. 

I added in some browns, greys and a turquoise sashing. 

One of the older projects here in Mesa is for a quilt called Pow Wow and the blocks are started.  Lots more to go before the blocks become a quilt top.

Have one more fun project also on my design wall.  I saw this last fall at the local quilt shop and it called my name.

You can also see the beginnings of a table topper that will be finished and will live here in Arizona. 

The following mug rugs were fun some swaps that I was in this month.

Busy days, sewing machine is humming!
