Colour My World Challenge: January Red

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE color and so when M-R said she was going to do the Colour My World Challenge I had to find a way to get involved!  For the month of January the color RED was chosen and it just so happens I had just completed a duo of Red and White mug rugs when the announcement was made.  I decided that would be my entry for the month of January (I also checked in with M_R to make sure that would work, lol).  Each month I will make a pair of Mug rugs exploring the challenge color.  Not only will this allow me to get creative, but it is practical to keep my projects small at this point while waiting for a baby to arrive!

I made the fabric in the middle from my "crumbs" or little itty-bitty left-overs, and then cut the circles from that.  The circles were attached using iron-on adhesive and then sewn around the edges with a zig-zag stitch.  Then starting at one edge of the circle I swirled around and around to create a pebble in the sand sort of look.  We have these beauties out for Valentine's Day, sadly our only decorations for the holiday currently.  And now to start working on the color for February: Purple!


  1. Great idea and really pretty too.

    How are you doing? Hanging in there still?

  2. I love those! The quilting is fantastic :)

  3. Those are adorable! I love the circle and the effect of the quilting!

  4. Great job, Shanna! That looks very cool! It looks like the reds are peeking through the white. Great use of scraps too!


I love to hear from my readers!
