Today, I though I’d share a few small projects I didn’t take the time to share in the past months. First, I made two placemats before Chritmas for each of my sons teacher.
My sons helped me chose the patterns and fabrics. I had proposed a few paper-piecing patterns. One chose the Lil’ Fox by Sonja for Artisania. The other, a free apple pattern by Electric Quilt, which I adapted a bit.
The second project was for a mug bag swap that we had in January at the Montreal MQG. I made my own pattern for it. But, the design was inspired by a small leather pouch I first saw on on Pinterest. I love simple designs and I often my inspiration in leather projects. See more about what inspires me in this Pinterest board.
The last project I want to share was for a mug rug swap. We had a meet-up between the Ottawa MQG and Montreal MQG this weekend. And for the ice breaker, we did a little swap. As I was looking what I could do for my mug rug, I stumble upon a quilt made using the Stepping Stones pattern by Judy Niemeyer. I thought the block would look great as a mug rug. So, I made my-self a paper-piecing template inspired by the block. Here is the result.
