    I've got lots of WIPs going (and strewn around the living/sewing room), but here are a couple completed projects and a new quilt block.

    The patriotic table runner and coffee cozy are Christmas gifts. I've since finished the coffee cozy, but that picture came out blurry. It fits a typical disposable coffee cup perfectly and will be accompanied by a Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks giftcard. The embroidery is in a sage-ish green, matching the inside/back material. Sadly these pictures make the colors look dreary and dull...but hopefully you get the idea.

    And here's a new quilt block. I love the colors! I don't like the pattern on the ivory fabric (and I don't have enough for the whole quilt anyhow) so I'll be buying some solid ivory soon. My FIL will be making me a 3 1/2" plexiglass stencil to make the fussycut center easier. I'm also looking for a good burgundy/wine color fabric that coordinates too, but I think I'm off to a good start. :)

    I'm planning on it being a twin sized quilt for a future guest room or little girls room (neither of which do I have at the moment :wink: ). It's destined to be a WIP for a long time.

    Your runner is beautiful! What is the name of your quilt design? I like your choice of colors.

    The pattern for the quilt block is found here: http://quilterscache.com/Q/QuatrefoilsBlock.html

    I first saw it here http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/9912.page and decided to use some fabric I'd gotten a few years ago.

    You have been really busy. I think your mom is going to be tickled to death with the table runner. The tea cozy for your dad is a nice idea too-men are so hard to shop for. Great job on all your projects.

    I lofe the table runner and the coffee cozy but the block is awesome. I could see an entire quilt there easily. Do you design blocks often?

    Haha - of course not! Esp since I "stole" the idea from my quilt shop. :) I'll get back to you, barnbum, with the pattern name. It was very easy to put together.

    Don't you just love this pattern? It's so easy.

    You did a wonderful job on it and the colors too!

    those are all great!! what did you use to line the tea cozy? Did you use regular batting or something special for the heat? I have thought about making some of those as well and giving as small gifts with gift card as well. I saw a kit a Connecting threads for cup cozy's that was pretty too. I may order a kit just to have the pattern and idea on hand.
