Do you ever surf flickr and find an image that takes you to a blog and before you know it, 3 hours have passed? That happened a few weeks ago. I stumbled on this photo
The photo took me to Carol's blog (mamacjt). I don't know why her blog wasn't on my radar before. I was actually a swap partner of hers a few years ago in the Mug Rug Swap. This is the beautiful mug rug (and goodies!) she sent me.
Hey, glad you came back. I know, right? Such good stuff.
Anyway, I was inspired to
copy create a mini based on one of hers. I've wanted to play with some scrappy, solid, improve blocks. This is what I came up with.
So different for me. Carol's came out about 12" square. Mine, not so much. More like 18. I like it though. Learned a lot. Like if I can't press toward the solid, I really should trim back those solid seams so they don't creep into the white. Or better yet, go with a grey background. And I think I should have extended the echo quilting over the entire background. What ev. Hubby's claimed it. He wants it hanging in the bathroom. Can't imagine why.
