Here's the picture:
Yes, it looks familiar because I blogged about it when I finished the little quilt. I kept it for Show and Tell at the Quilt Guild meeting. That's OK! I still beat the due date by more than a month!!! :o)

Mug Rug??? What's a mug rug? It's an over-sized quilted coaster big enough to hold a cup or glass of your favorite beverage and a snack. The actual size (and shape varies.) The majority are about 7" x 8", but some are as big as 8" x 10".
You may be wondering why you couldn't just make your own. Well, you CAN, but it wouldn't be nearly as much fun! The mug rug that I made for ____________ went out in the mail this week. I'm anxious to find out if my interpretation of her theme was anything like what she was hoping to get. (She asked for tropical and I went beach-y.)
I'll add a photo when the mug rug has arrived at its new home.
Ready? Set. Sew!

This week... my stash took me back to the beach. Memories of friends, family, and fun went into the making of this quilt. Well, that and a few bright fabrics from the "kid print" drawer in my studio.
Along with memories of beach vacations, this quilt took me on another trip down memory lane. This one is a quilting memory because the central fabric was a past "Quilts for Kids" challenge fabric. It's too bad that I can't bring up a mental image of the actual quilt that I made, but the scraps are proof that I made one!
If you look at this quilt just right... you might even be able to see the sand drawing of a silly face with its tongue hanging out. :o)
Until next time...

Hi there! I thought I'd take ONE photo to show ALL of the previously unpictured projects for the Spring 2011 UFO Club.
So... What's the challenge???
The challenge will be completing them by the June 30th deadline! (My track record hasn't been the greatest since the beginning of the year.)
For this session, I've narrowed my focus and set some realistic goals. Most of the projects that I've chosen are REALLY close to being done! Between that and the fact that I submitted fewer selections, I'm hoping to be able to check off a number of the projects on the list.
Wish me luck!
