Fall Table Topper

I've been in the mood to make small projects to spruce up the house for fall.

I found this cute fall tree fabric at Joann's and couldn't resist buying it.  For weeks, I could not come up with a project for it and then one night, I thought of this design.  All the other fabric is from my stash.

My new-ish walking foot made quilting SUPER easy.  This is my first attempt at making a grid.  It turned out pretty well.

Mug Rugs

Since "mug rugs" are all the rage in Blogland, I decided to make a few of my own.  

I've always been interested in flying geese, so I decided to try them out on this small project.  
Conclusion: Flying geese are complicated and only cute when they are perfect!
The fabric is a reproduction print left over from this quilt.

My dad requested this mug rug inspired by LandShark Lager.  lol
It was a good opportunity to test my free motion quilting skills.  As you can see, they are lacking, but I'm improving.  Maybe in 2 years, I'll be ready for a quilt. 

Free Projects = Fun Projects 
I used left over fabric and batting for these mug rugs!
