quilt as you go!

Over the last few days I have been doing some quilt as you go blocks to send over to Queensland.
I came home from work one day a little cheesed off with the world and started cutting up strips and well.................
then I worked out that I needed 35 square for a quilt and then the fun began....
I was surprised at the vast array of colours that came out of the box!!
Might I say that the box is still full... not sure what happens during the night I am sure that it multiplies!!!!!!

time to lay out a few block to see what they look like together... mm they say that cats and dogs like to lay on your quilts but really..  the DD also!!!!!

then the new member of the family our little Jack Russell cross joined the party!

I then decided that I had better pack them up, and the two dogs want one block each!! and they did pull a face when they had the patch pulled out from under them.

 I have just a few more to finish and then they will be packed up and sent on there way ....

My daughter has taken up sewing and has made her first mug rug... she says its for her Grandma,  she even quilted it!
 here is a picture of it.

I have been make a few mug rugs also

I have been having lots of fun making these.
