MUG RUG SET, CHALLENGE BLOCK

It seemed to be mug rug friday here at home....i made 3 mug rugs and quilted them....i already had 1 blue one made but when i was rummaging around in the scrap box i ran across a lot f blues so again i got side tracked and made three of them that would co ordinate with the one already made...it was a good idea as martha would say....i just finished binding them....i even had leftover binding that was right...though i had to add a few inches to 1 of them...luckily i had a small piece of same fabric in the gfg quilt stack of fabrics....

Saturday i worked on part 2 of a challenge from another group....the host threw a curve at us....she announced there would be a part 2 to it after we finished with part 1...and boy did she!....if we did the easier one the first time we had to do a harder one on part 2 so i am working on a harder one this time.....we are to add flying geese to the outside of the block and make it come out even all the way around....i worked on the block and before i quit i wanted to make sure the flying geese was going to work before i quit so with some figuring before i started i just had to know.....i had added a border first and then needed to know just how many flying geese it was going to take....yay i had figured right...that made my day...

this morning i cut out the rest of the squares for the geese and now ready for the other 3 sides then it will be on to quilting and binding the block....this will be table topper size of about 26 inches when finished so will be a nice size fall one that is looking good!....

i can post part one now of the challenge being she posted the pics of everyones

this measures about 18 inches square and the border and hst are what we had to add to the already block from quilters cache....i chose Christmas colors and i even chose a new name for the block....'Ribbons on my Christmas package'...it seemed very appropriate lol....

the sun is shining and is looking very fall today....if i was smart i would be out taking some nice fall pictures before all the leaves are gone....from my family room window i can see my tree just ouside the patio is turning what looks like an orange this year.....if so it will be very pretty so will have to check it out...

well off to get a little more coffee before i move on with the day....week end is almost over again and new week is here...make it a good one.....more later....
