Zakka Along Week 7 :: Rain Cloud Mug Rug

This post is part of the Zakka Style Sew Along, please visit here to catch up if you’re just joining us!


Welcome to week 7!

We’ve completed the first quarter of the sew along and today I have an extra prize to share!

First take a peek at some of the magnets from last week:

This was a challenging project because of the tiny size (1.5″) of each magnet.

I know several of you really pushed yourselves with this project and I’m glad to see you stepping out of your comfort zone and growing your sewing skills!

Let’s see who won the giveaway for this week.   We had 34 entries for week 6 and our winner is #3, Lish, Sew Wunderful!

Congratulations Lish and thank you to Sew Mama Sew for sponsoring this giveaway!


Okay, now I have another winner to announce!

Amy and I decided to break the sew along into 4 quarters and give away a prize at the completion of each quarter.

That way if you weren’t able to meet the weekly giveaway deadline, you still had a chance to win a prize if you linked up your project for that quarter before the 6 weeks were up.

Fat Quarter Shop has graciously offered a $75.00 gift certificate to our 1st quarter winner!

For the first 6 weeks of the sew along we had 322 projects linked up!!  Woohoo!

Our winner of the 1st quarter giveaway is #101, Danielle Raichel with her pincushion from week 3.   Isn’t it cute?

Congratulations and thank you to the Fat Quarter Shop!  Our next quarterly giveaway will be at the completion of week 12.


Are you still with me??  I know this post is total info overload, but now it’s time to jump in and check out our project for this week!

John from Quilt Dad is inspiring us with his Rain Cloud Mug Rug for week 7.   He’s also giving away some fun stuff too!

Projects that are completed and entered this week will be eligible to win our last $30 gift certificate to Zip It!

You may begin linking up your finished Mug Rugs today through Sunday May 20th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win the $30 gift certificate to Zip It!

Click on the frog picture below to link up (one) of your projects or to view the entries.

Head on over to visit John and make sure to check out the new issue of Fat Quarterly too!

Have fun this week!
