So I was scanning through Instagram the other day and fell in love with some fabric. It was farm animals in yoga positions. I had to have some and tracked yardage down at EQuilter.com. It's been ordered and is winging its way across the ocean to me.
BUT, I also had a quick peek on E Bay and managed to pick up a FQ of the same fabric over here in the UK
along with frogs in yoga poses that are adorable.
The reason I couldn't wait for the fabric from the US to appear is that my Yoga partner in crime ( we started on the same day) has her birthday tomorrow. I just had to use this fabric for something for her.
I fussy cut some of the animals and bordered them . Sewed them together and she will now have a new mug rug for her desk.
I used the other fabric for the back ( the frogs I'm keeping for myself)
The quilting was fairly simple. Just a cross hatch, leaving the fussy cuts alone. I couldn't decide whether to quilt in a non metallic gold or a pale blue. I decided on both. The blue in one direction and the gold in the other.
And that's it. A few hours work this afternoon.
The yardage that's on the way from the US includes another fabric in the range and will become a lap quilt for me to use in class.
