Winter Quilt Show and Finished Projects

I attended the Winter Quilt Show in West Bend last week and I bought quite a bit of cool stuff. I'm not that fond of wearing t-shirts but I absolutely had to have this one! I picked up some longarm supplies as well. A quilt show is usually the best place to get stuff discounted for my longarm. It's nice to see some of the shows get back to pre-pandemic practices. 

I finished the travel tote bag I started last month. It turned out nice and I like the size of it. Even though I do love the fabrics I chose it doesn't match any of my luggage. So I think it looks funny on top of my teal suitcase. Maybe I will have to make another one to match the luggage or buy new luggage  - haha!

I also completed the largest of the Lori Holt zipper pouches. The panel came with quite a few of these on it so there's quite a few more to go. I just can't decide how I want to quilt them so I'm not getting as far as I wish when it comes to getting them done.

Valentine Hearts Mug Rugs

I purchased a PDF pattern from Etsy for these cute little mug rugs. I couldn't wait to get started on them the moment I printed out the instructions. Pink is one of my favorite colors so I loved playing with the fabrics.

These were so very easy and fun. I didn't do anything fancy to the hearts or letters, they're just raw-edge appliqué.  

Last year I made many table toppers. So many that I got tired of binding them. This is one of three that I had left to bind. It's rewarding to call another unfinished object completed. 

Speaking of UFOs...

Tiny Town Quilt

My tiny town quilt is on the longarm. I can't decide how to quilt it so it might be sitting here for a while.
