It’s my day… and a little giveaway… °Ü°

Oh what fun it’s been seeing all the great 60’s
and batik creations made for this hop
hosted by Mary from I piece 2-Mary
and Mdm Samm over at Sew We Quilt!
Thank you ladies for another great hop!
October 3
When trying to decide what to make,
I just had to take one look at our hop button
and knew it would be a Twister project!
I loved playing Twister with my siblings
and was inspired by the game’s spinner
so I made this little mug rug to
go with the Twister mug I found on EBay!
and used some of the Island Batik fabrics I used
to create a Batik version of my new pattern, Sunday Ride
And since this hop is all about batiks…
I made this runner using my Propelled pattern
and used more fabric by Island Batik
Would you like to make this runner?
I have 2 pre-cut runner kits, each with a Propelled pattern
to giveaway to 2 of y’all!
You have until Wednesday, Oct 9 to enter
a Rafflecopter giveaway
So glad you came over for a visit
and hope you’re enjoying this wonderful hop!

    I love my rotary cutter! If it wasn't for that I probably wouldn't have ever started quilting. Tracing and cutting around templates is just not my thing.

    The twister mug rug is fun, what a find you have in that mug. A perfect combination!. 🙂

    I used to say I love my rotary cutter….but since I managed to burry the thing in my finger last week….. I would have to say that my other great love has taken the number one spot. I have a longstanding affair with my thimble.There. I said it. I do most of my sewing by hand, although I am slowly venturing into the machine world lately, but my thimble is my steady companion while sewing!.
    I love your twister inspired work! Thank you!

    I remember having played twister as a kid…it was loads of fun. Love your mug rug, so simple but with such impact! My favourite notion would be the ruler/templates I bought from Debby Kratovil…just love them!

  4. Debby says:

    Beautiful mug rug with a theme! Twister – we played it all the time. And your other quilts are so beautiful. Favorite tool? Whichever one at the moment that gets me from a pile of fabric to a finished project without too much sweat. If I can't find one, I make one up from what I have. The angles on our straight rulers have awesome potential and they can get me to some pretty groovy places!

  5. Thearica says:

    Your Twister mug rug is adorable! I have to tell you, your Sunday Ride quilt has stolen my heart. These days I am drawn to anything with a bicycle on it. 🙂

    A low budget dictates that when it comes to quilting tools, I am a minimalist. My favorite tool is my 28mm rotary cutter. I use it to cut, as a seam ripper, and to make my cards. I'm glad I took a few extra minutes to read blogs this morning. I would have really missed out on seeing some sweet designs if I'd missed this post. You really raised the bar with that cute little mug rug and matching mug. Cute, clever, and winner in my book. Just love your Sunday Ride quilt. So sweet and innocent. And what's not to love about the runner? Crisp and charming. Great post!

  7. Thearica says:

    My favorite tool would have to be my AccuGlide ruler that I use when I am longarm quilting. I used it until 1:00 a.m. this morning. Couldn't relax enough to go to sleep so I got up and worked a while.

  8. Jeanie says:

    Beautiful projects. Love all of the little scenes in the Sunday Ride quilt and your twister mug/mug rug is delightful. Love the runner and thanks for the generous giveaway. Since I just spray basted a quilt yesterday… I'll choose spray basting as my favorite tool. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Elizabeth Coughlin says:

    Wow beautiful projects! I'm now following your blog because everything I see on it is so nice. My favorite tool is definitely my seam ripper. I'm constantly taking things apart and starting over lol.

  10. JanesQuilting says:

    Ah, the Twister game. I had one of those. We played it a lot. Your mug rug captured it perfectly. I guess my favorite tool would be my cutter. Anyway it sure is the one Abuse most.

  11. Carrie P. says:

    oh, your projects are just gorgeous. I would love to win a kit.
    My favorite tool is my rotary cutter. I don't know if I would be a quilter if it weren't for that tool. I don't think I would want to cut out a quilt with scissors.

  12. Needled Mom says:

    Your Sunday Ride is GORGEOUS, Cherry. What a fun quilt. I love the Twister mug rug too. I can remember being in all of those awful contortions playing that. Great idea!

    Your runner is so pretty and in such great colors. I do love batiks.

  13. Joan Kawano says:

    I love your twister mug and rug! Now that is just a blast to the past. Hummm, wonder if these ole bones would even be able to twist anymore? LOL For sure the body would not be getting of the floor if they did! Stunning propeller runner. Love your fabrics. And that Sunday ride quilt… OMG, I love it!

  14. Kathy H says:

    Love all of your quilts. The sunday ride is gorgeous. My favorite tool right now is my walking foot. I have been putting on lots of binding and making several zip bags and it works great.

  15. Lori says:

    I love your quilt, and your mug rug is adorable. I can remember playing that till my sides hurt from laughter. My kiddos played it also. your table runner is fabulous. I have been on a table runner kick lately. This would go perfect in my kitchen. Thanks for a chance to win.
    Oh my favorite quilting tool is my rotary cutter. I love how It helps to get straight cuts.

  16. Sheila says:

    Love your projects , the runner is gorgeous and I also love your new pattern . My favorite tool wold definitely be my sewing machine , couldn't do much with that 🙂

  17. Rachel says:

    Everything is so pretty! The twister mug and cup made me chuckle. I love the colors on that table runner, and your Sunday ride quilt is gorgeous and fun! It looks like a lot of applique, is it a difficult pattern? At the moment the tri-recs rulers are my favorite tool. They are making a previously difficult wall-hanging I'm working on come along so nice and easy and with minimal waste.

  18. Anonymous says:

    My favorite quilt tool is one i dont have and that is the accu quilt cutters. It is very difficult for me to cut fabric because of health reasons babscorbitt@ gmail dot com

  19. Beverly says:

    All your work is amazing! Do you have a pattern for the mug rug? I love that mug rug!!!!!! If you are selling the mug rug pattern, please email me at bevwalks at aol dot com. THANKS

  20. Lyndsey says:

    I love your twister mug rug and the Sunday ride pattern is beautiful. My favourite tool at the moment seems to be my seam ripper as I keep making lots of mistakes, but can't manage without my rotary cutter.

  21. Deonn @ Quiltscapes says:

    Hi, Cherry! Oh, my goodness – loved you groovy girls in your cute mini-dresses, great idea for the mug rug, but my jaw dropped at your Sunday Ride quilt… stunning! I must try this pattern. Each block is beautiful. My favorite tool? ooh, hard to pick a fave! Today, though, it's the Quilt in a Day Triangle Square up ruler, since I'm making a billion HSTs for DD's wedding quilt!

  22. Angelia Lanouette says:

    My favorite tool is my Clover Wonder Clips…love them. But what I really love is your Sunday Ride quilt….beautiful! I can remember playing Twister when I was young and having so much fun. At my age I like your version much better! Thank you for sharing! anglanouette at gmail dot com

  23. LJ says:

    Those Island batiks are gorgeous. I think all your patterns are groovy; the Sunday morning ride is one I could look at for ages – so many things on there to see. Peace, baby.

    I nominate you as the winner today :-). Love all your projects, especially the twister mug rug (and mug), and the table runner. Just love those colors. Your quilt reminds me of a Charles Wisocki painting.
