    Yeah it is my second, but I put it aside cause I wanted to get a throw pieced so I really was slacking.

    I have a ton of ideas for more rugs, and one day may actually get a few done up. You can use any block you want to make a rug, any size you want. The options are nearly as endless as quilt tops!

    For the "March" virtual quilt retreat, am thinking of doing a fabric bowl, it is not quilted but uses material, need to do up a sample. One of our board members did some last weekend, using up a bunch of her 2in scrap strips. This might be a good project. And just in time for easter I am just a little nervous about trying but gonna just let go and try it. So definitely keep tuned.

    Also, if anyone comes across a quick and easy project that they think would make a great retreat project, please feel free to send me a picture or link, I am always happy to give something a try

    Carolyn: Just had an idea. What about quilt room assessories? For instance, pin cushions both regular and wrist, notion holders etc. I know, I am dangerous when I have a thought. Don't worry, won't happen again for another couple of months.

    To be honest emma, I have been batting around an idea for a pin cushion (no pun intended there) I need something to hold my safety pins OPEN, and was thinking of a "couch" like shape where the "seat" is where you put the pins in. Havent drawn anything up for that yet, but it would be a nice accessory rather than opening/closing pins all the time while quilting.

    Love it! I can just see it at the beach, I think it would make a great sand rug also.

    I am actually sending it, the towels and the quilted throw I was working on last weekend to a friend I play video games with online. She lives in the netherlands and suffers from fibromalysia (sp) , apparently it isnt as accepted as a serious issue over there like it has been recently over here. She always struggles to keep happy and not get too depressed. I thought she could use a good hug all the time and the rug/towels are an extra present, she doesnt know she is getting them.

    Yours turned out very pretty! I have just finished the binding on mine tonight.... remember I turned mine into a picnic table rug complete with hole in the middle for the umbrella. Here's the front & back pictures. Name:  Picnic Rug Finished001_edited (Small).JPG

    Thimblebug: Truly a great finish! Love the fact it is totally reversable for a change of mood.
