You Meet the Nicest People!

Sandi from Shakopee, MN dropped by after reading my post yesterday about the Heart to Hand patterns! She also sent me a picture of this gorgeous mat..the end product of a rug punch class which she taught at Eagle Creek Quilt Shop.  She took the  Merry Christmas Pattern (from Heart to Hand) and used wool rug yarn and presto…this lovely rug! 


I bet the quilters from Eagle Creek Quilt Shop were THRILLED with this project..which measured out at 24” X 42”!

Thanks so much for sharing, Sandi!!  Pop in again for coffee…and bring your album!

So if you’re a rug might want to have another look at those patterns…see yesterday’s post! 

Only Five MORE DAYS!!  I’m ready…and waiting…for the kids to get here!  This morning two of them have left Calgary and are heading West…my fingers and toes are crossed…for no snow on the mountain passes…!!  It’s a Mother’s job to worry…and I take it seriously!!

Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting!!~P


  1. Yes that is a lovely rug. Are you a rug hooker? Yes A safe journey for all those that are traveling.

  2. Oh, I know it is such a worry getting all those chicks home.. I was in Shakopee years ago while visiting my neice in Richfield.We went to every quilt shop that we could see. It was a wonderful time.
    Have a wonderful Holiday,
    Maggey & Jim

  3. Love the rug. Have never tried rug punch, but after seeing this mat, I might have to try one. I too am awaiting children. One from Lasqueti Island and two from Vancouver. All with grandchildren. Yipee!

  4. What a beautiful piece. I use quilt patterns for hooking and punching, they work well with a primitive look.


  5. I'm waiting for two kids, a s-i-l and two grandchildren, driving from Whitehorse to Prince George. I'm trying to pray instead of worry.

  6. What a wonderful project you did. Enjoy your holiday!

  7. It's beautiful and the snowman is my favorite! =)

  8. Oh that turned out so beautiful! I love it!

  9. Hope the kids arrive safe and sound!!..enjoy the peace and quiet..soon the house will be filled with lots of activity!!!

  10. That rug is a work of art! Yep, I'd be right there with ya worrying, I'm a champion too. *G*
