Black Tie Boogie Hop

Is it Friday already,  where do the weeks go?  I was told by my mother when I was a little girl that the older you get the faster time goes by.  Boy, I hate to admit how right she was.  

Today is my day to show what I came up with for the "Black Tie Boogie" hop.  And wait till you see what I made.   

But first and foremost, I want to thank
     for all their hard work to make this all possible. 

When I first heard of the Black Tie Boogie hop, my first thought was making something out of black ties.  Oh, was I wrong....this is sooo much more fun!  

I never made roosters before, so I got out my paper and drew this:


OK, it was a normal rooster, so I did him in this cool fabric I had.
He ended up a Mug Rug for a good friend of mine that LOVES Spots.


Now my juices are flowing.  I got out my paper again.  Oh look, Foghorn Leghorn is flirting with those chickens again:



Oh I had fun hunting for the right fabric that I had in mind for him.  (I used some of my scrap Bali's)




I machine appliqued them onto a gray background, added a boarder and quilted it in a grid.
And here it is with the finishing touches on:




Well, now that you have seen my Roosters, grab a cup of coffee and some cookies and lets go see the rest:


November 22  (today)

And here is next weeks schedule:


November 25
November 26
November 27
November 28

Sad to say, this is the last Blog hop of the year.  The holidays are coming and everyone is going to be very busy.  I know I sure am.  I have been trying to keep up with Christmas items and getting ideas for Christmas presents to get and make.  Oh, this was always my favorite time of year.  The day after Thanksgiving is the day to put up my tree and decorate.  I love turning all the lights out at night and turning on the Tree lights.  Then light a few candles on the Mantle.  Oh, what a great atmosphere of the season.  

But wait....before we all go off and doing our own thing for the season, I got this really cool EQ Quilting Designs program with over 800 quilting designs that I am givingaway.  


 

To enter is easy, just leave me a comment.  For a second entry be a follower and let me know.  I am offering this to anyone, and will ship it anywhere.  So make sure I can contact you.  I will announce my winner next Saturday after the hop is over,  (November 30th).   So good luck to everyone.  

Till then, I hope you all check out all the rest of those proud roosters out there.

AND

HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!

Oooh yeah, the rooster just loves his chicks, such a friendly quilt, just makes me smile and reminds me of MAX, my favourite rooster we had in Namibia, he was a very happy coq looking after 25 hens.... what a life :-))

Purl Buttons said...

I love the little mug rug. I am currently having heart palpitations over traditional and vintage designs. Foghorn is cute, too. I think he is old enough to be considered VINTAGE if not TRADITIONAL!

Cute fabrics and what awesome roosters!

Yep, I follow with Feedly.

LJ said...

Both of your projects are fabulous, Jane. The fabric choices for the mug rug are really neat and that touch of red really makes it pop. Foghorn is grand and it was perfect that you had him hugging those hens!! lol I noticed that outside border was 'perfect' as it looked like an old barn board.

Sewgirl said...

What a cute quilt project! Your art work is fantastic.
Thanks the chance at the generous giveaway as well...that will come in very handy for some lucky person!
