I was the recipient of an Act of Thoughtfulness this week from a coworker. She knows I quilt, and that my style is "mod" as she put it. When she was at an estate sale recently, she saw some fabrics that she thought I would love, and bought them to give to me!
Aren't they great? The frog print (from Blank Quilting) is a half-metre cut, and the others (Marcus Brothers textiles) are FQs.
So as a thank you, I whipped up this little (~8" square) mug rug for her desk at work. Her first initial is a T, and she is a fan of purple and grey. She loved it, I'm happy to say.
Very simple stipple quilting in a gorgeous variegated purple thread (Aurifil 3840 in 50 wt):
I'm in the home stretch with this round of training at work. So far the sessions have gone extremely well. I've received some terrific feedback and I've been having a blast. Only two full-day sessions and one half-day session to go, then I'm off work for a week. I can finally get to responding to the lovely comments you've been leaving me these last few post!! Can't wait!
