Spending so much time outside doing yard work at really cut into my quilting time but…..I always make time for a little project or two.
A little mug rug is a perfect fast and easy project.
I had some 5 inch charm squares of batik and decided to cut them into 3/4 inch strips. I think 1 inch strips would have been better.
I also had a fat quarter of this fun fabric with writing on it, I can’t remember who made it and I don’t have a selvage strip…..hmmm…..I wonder if I cut it off. I know my selvage bag is overflowing….might be time to work on a project with them.
I cut the background strips at 6 1/2 inches for play room and just started sewing them together. I pressed each seam as I finished it.
Then I trimmed it up to a good mug rug size. My finished piece is 7 x 10.
This really makes me think of fall leaves and bonfires! Do you like working with small pieces like this?
I had a batik in my stash that matched pretty good for a binding.
For quilting I just used a walking foot and quilted along the edge of the foot for my width.
Today we get to have lunch at……Chucky Cheese…..yep….our grand-daughter has a birthday and that is where she wanted her party.
