Fresh Sewing Day November

This fall is flying by, it's November already! How did that happen??? Wasn't it just August? Anyway, I did finish a BIG project in October, my Layers quilt. I have to say that this was a labor of love and by far my biggest project. It took a month to quilt the blocks and a month to quilt the borders. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I entered this quilt in the Fall 2013 Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side in the home machine quilted category. Voting starts today and I would LOVE it if you voting for my quilt.

I have also been working on Christmas with my mug rug collection.

I'm making mug rugs for Christmas presents. I need to make about a dozen of these little cuties and of course I need to bind five of these. I still have time.

Last night I finished FMQ the last two mug rugs I had pieced.
This one is for my boss. I work at New York Chiropractic College in the division of Institutional Quality and Assessment. We do a lot of measuring and crunching data. I thought this was appropriate.

Can you see IQA quilted in to the mug rug?
I'm linking up with Lynne over at Lily's Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day and with Leah Day at The Free Motion Quilting Project for FMQ Friday.
