I added two new videos on using my super cute new 4" SNACK SET templates! Did you know you can MACHINE piece or hand piece?
You know people still hand piece right? LOL I love it on the airplane or car rides..small projects I can take along with me... So much fun, with these easy to piece cuties! I have two quilts in the works right now... These little gems are quite sweet, and can be used as the start of a larger block or a whole quit just with the 4" size... Possibilities are endless!
I realize I still need to show some QuiltCon photos! We really had a lot of fun vending and being able to say HI to so many people! Here's a few fun photos for you to see of our VFW Quilts booth. I also will be sharing pictures from my classes! Amazing students doing some very fun things! Stay tuned!
If you look closely at the bunting, you will see they are my SNACK set blocks set in a square in a square... SEE! Super cute!!
They also make great name tags, and mug rugs! (Did you see my last post?)
BTW, are any of you going to Paducah?
I will be there! As will my "Mr. Swirl E. Bones", and this quilt, "Negative Space, Positive Attitude"! which I found out yesterday have been juried into the Paducah show! YIPPEE! ( both quilted by my pal Shelly, at Prairiemoonquilts.com
(More details on Paducah to come! I have lots of exciting stuff going on at Paducah, including 30 Double Wedding Ring Quilts, and one 9' X 30' quilt! (yep!) (follow me at Instagram to see what's been up!) and I hope to see you there!

YAY!!! I think I have to much sugar in system from yesterday...
What did I do this weekend? I hand stitched all weekend!
First I finished up the mini quilts for our booth using the 4" Variety pack templates that are new in the store. ( below) Then I embroidered and sewed the binding on the Little 4" block above to be used at a name tag at QuiltCon. All of us at VFW Quilts made new name tags using the NEWsnack set templates. Kim, Laura, and Susan and I will all be in Savannah! I can't believe in one week we will be road tripping to GA! Will you be there?
The little "Variety Pack" quilts are looking so good! These blocks are so addicting!!
Easy to piece, and super cute!
I also had been working on quilting this new DWR quilt this entire past week... I finally finished it Sunday morning! I immediately trimmed it, made the bias binding, sewed it on, took it home so I could binge watch and hand bind all day. Yep. It's done... Now to do three quite sleeves this week, Class samples as I seem to have lost them from my Craft Napa trip... (I'm sure they are hiding and will turn up as soon as I finish new samples...) Above I used my Double wedding ring set and my Full Melon template all in one quilt!
I need to get this up on the wall today and photograph it... It was a fun one to make!
We Love Mugrugs! They're a quick and easy, practical and useful project. And if a quick Google search for images of Mugrugs is any indication, we're not alone! Sized just right for your favorite beverage, a spoon, and a small snack, they're somewhere between a placemat and a coaster, the perfect pop of fiber art for any tabletop, nightstand or desk. Help us to create a movement, and "A Marcus Rug for Every Mug!"

I have already been playing in my solids scrap bins, and am working on a tonal quilt using
Snack set #1. I'm using two colors close in value, to make 9 patch blocks...in every color combo I can find in my scrap bin. That has not stopped me from making more little blocks of the other sets though! Extra Set #6 and #3 keep popping up on my wall as well!
SNOW DAY!!! 6" already, and to think yesterday was 65. sigh.
Today I will finish my binding on the individual coasters/mug rugs I made as well!
I hope you will love playing with these Snack Sets!!
I bet you can't just make one! ( less calories than potato chips!)
