Oopsie...Mug Along Crossed Wires...Sorry Billie!

If you are looking for my Sew We Quilt's Mug Rug Hop Post, you can find it here...

I am late on this post because I misunderstood the schedule plans on this...which should have posted Sunday...Sorry Billie...

I saw this new Block of the Month designed by Kate Spain show up at the Moda Website and knew I wanted to join in...

In From the Cold by Kate Spain
In From the Cold (free pattern), go to Moda's site here.

This is my version of Block number 1...



While I was at it, I talked my friend Billie into joining me...we are going to post together as we finish each mug.  I have chosen to use up my odds and ends scraps from Kate Spain's prior Christmas fabric collections and Billie has chosen a completely different palette...be sure to check hers out here.  I love her fussy cutting :)

The pattern is pretty easy to follow as long as you "get" the paging back and forth to keep from repeating the steps for each block...hope you join us!  I think we're posting together next time but I am going to have to make sure I understand the plan better going forward ;)

edited to add:
Prayers for the city of Boston, and all the marathon participants and spectators...we had 3 of our church family there and are thankful to find out that they are safe!

You are too funny about the timing. You know it was me that messed it up, but thanks for taking the credit for it. Let me know when the next block is due....giggle.

Love your block!

Oh Kris
You and Billie are too funny. I think when you get together you must really get up to mischief.
The mugs are very cute. Thanks for sharing the link.
