Description

Made this for the August Snack Mat Swap. I equate summer with cherry pie, cherry cobbler, cherry anything. I had made an apron for my daughter using the cherry fabric and had saved a snippet just enough for this project. Now it's time for the binding. Love my clover clips! No more stabbing myself with straight pins which always puts me in a bad mood.

August 30th-snack mat has landed so I can post the finished picture. I wish all the recipients of my quilts were half as enthusiastic as True was over this little ditty!

Oh my goodness this is the sweetest little mug rug!!! I love it what adorable fabric and love the quilting. And cute pattern...that red with the other colors is wonderful.

Terryt1955

Thank you True and Carolmarie . Now that I have this one almost done I'm ready to take on some more. I just ordered the Farmer's Wife Quilt Book and I'm sure I'm going to have oodles of inspiration. The square within the snowball is called The Kitchen Woodbox.

True

It would be a great block for a larger quilt will need to remember it!

Mymble

Wonderful-love the fabrics, design and quilting-did I mention it's wonderful?

Rebecca

I love that kitchen woodbox block! I'm usually not a big fan of snowball blocks, but I like this one - I'll have to remember it. Nice choice on the quilting too. Very pretty!

Conniharns

This is adorable! Cherries....red..black and white...can't ever go wrong. Love this.

Terryt1955

Thanks Rebecca , +Connieharns, Mymble and Chrissybugs . I'm hoping True is going to love it too. Ooops spilled the beans!

True

OMG REALLY IT IS MINE!!!! Terryt1955 yes I am yelling really loud so you can hear!!!! (we are a long way apart after all). I have had a really bad day at work (that is what happens when one's funds from the State of Maine!) and you just made it so much better!!! What you don't know is how obsessed with your mug rug I have been...I looked at white, black and red fabrics at this great quilt shop I visited in MI AND I have been drawing out the Kitchen WoodBox pattern on graph paper to decide size as I want to use it to make a lap quilt...I am thinking with the colors from Threadbias Community quilt!! Oh I am so happy right now and this will be my first quilt from someone else! Thank you...

Terryt1955

True I am so happy I made your day. Your excitement has given me goosebumps, really! I would love to see a whole quilt with this block. It would be smashing. Get on it!!!

True

I am doing the new mug rug dance here!!!

Terryt1955

True LOL!!

Rebecca

Yay! This is going to be so fun to see everyone's mats arriving in their new homes!

Caribousmom

Wow, I totally missed this thread!!!! What a great little mug rug - and I love True 's enthusiasm :)

  • Caribousmom, seriously, I got more of a reaction from True on her snack mat that I've received from any of the recipients I've given full on quilts to! I think I should make her a quilt just to see her reaction over that!
True

OMG why don't we try it Terryt1955 and see what happens;-)!! And +cariobousmom is welcome to join is as well:-) I truly am this excited I never get stuff like this from others... and I tend to be the one doing the making and giving and it is so wonderful to be on other end of it. Add to it work has been nonstop requiring loads of patience, thinking and giving to others as of late and this just feels so good to me:-)

True

oops Caribousmom (I cannot type...)

Rebecca

Psst - Terryt1955 True and + Caribousmom we're planning on announcing another swap early next week. Will be for a small item though - not an entire quilt so carry on with that plan if you'd like. smile

True

LOL Rebecca I got it!!! And it is even better in person and I love the back AND the mug is wonderful!!!!! You rock Terryt1955
thank you so much!!

Terryt1955

True , you got it already?! I sent it out late Tuesday afternoon so it's the post office that rocks. I'm truely happy that you like it! I thought the mug just had to accompany it given the polka dot theme...

True

It is off to work with me today since that is where I spend so much of my time I want it with me...people will be drooling!!!

Terryt1955

Cute!

Caribousmom

LOL you guys crack me up (pssst Terry, I think you should make that quilt for True !!!!) and Rebecca - I'm excited to see what the next swap will be :)

Terryt1955

Really, Rebecca , now that I have the Comm-unity blocks in the mail I am ready for another swap!
