Tiny Friday Finish

I’m having lunch with a friend today, and her birthday was this last week, so I made this little mug mat for her. We’ve known each other for a long time; in fact, my husband and I met through her and her husband many years ago. But that’s another story . . .

The center block is from a fabric line called Comfort of Psalms, and I like to use it to make mug mats for friends. All of the fabrics were from my stash. The blue polka dot was supposed to be a dress for my daughter when she was little. Right when I was going to make it, she told me that she didn’t like polka dots. I love the polka dots, so I’ve used this piece quite often!

Introducing . . .

Another friend I’d like you to meet today is Tracie. Tracie and I have also known each other for years. We have shared many cups of coffee while chatting about life, family, faith, quilting, and her adorable dog. She has been a huge help to me as we both started blogging, and I am grateful to her for that. She is very creative, has a wonderful way with words, and an amazing eye for photography.

Tracie’s blog is Riceford Streams. Her current post shares some of the joys she finds from making quilts. Don’t miss her Vault of Happiness. Curious? Go check out her post and leave her a comment (tell her hi from me). While you’re there, don’t forget to take a peek at her Instagram, where you can see more of her photography and that adorable dog!

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I’m linking up today with Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

  1. It made me smile to read that your daughter didn’t like polka dots. I had a conversation with my son when he was in early grade school, or perhaps even pre-k. He told me he didn’t want to wear stripes. (That was a problem, as little boys then wore cotton knit shirts with stripes.) No stripes, and no plaids. Why not? Grown-ups wear stripes, “and I’m not a grown-up.” What about plaids? “Plaids are just stripes in two directions.” It was many years before I bought another striped shirt for him.

    1. She did like it. She said she’ll tuck it in a display rather than use it for a mug rug. 🙂 Thanks!
