Well, I've been MIA all week. lol. Finally a finish. Small, but done! My Tuesday Friendship Group pooled some Blue Strings from their stashes and we made some string blocks. Put blocks together and voila! Another Dish Mat. I love making these. With the leftover little blocks, we made a rectangular dish mat to sit in a narrow space next to the sink. Both of these were little "no nothing" surprises for one of our local quilt shops that give us space to meet and sew once a week. Aretoy is so great!

The other pic is hiding somewhere. We made it two blocks wide by four blocks long, added a 1.5 inch border and backed it with a towel like the bigger one.

Hope all is well at your end of the keyboard and that you have time to create something that you love. Until next time. . . keep sewing.

Quilty Hugs,
