When your last name is Campbell… is fun to collect things like….this. Doesn’t it look perfect with my new Broken Herringbone block!

Mini Broken Herringbone Mug Rug

Yesterday I pulled out some red batiks…..notice the top one….just bought that on our Minnesota trip….and played with the Broken Herringbone block. If you missed my post you can read it here and also find out how to make the block.

This block is a “little” smaller than the original block and a “little” bit longer. What do you think of the back!

A tiny bit of quilting and a flanged binding finished off this little mug rug which finishes at 9 x 12.

Before I get you confused about the Quilt Along that is going on, I’ll show you my red batik block for it. This block is 12 1/2 inches.

I’m making extra blocks….I have no idea why yet…but I know I’ll come up with something. I’m going to make blocks in rainbow colors.

I finished putting the binding on the table runner that I made with 2 blocks. When I showed this quilted the other day many people wondered if the Quilt Along was a Quilt As You Go (QAYG). No it isn’t, although if you were making each block with a sashing it could easily be a QAYG.

Two different projects….two different sizes. Oh, in case you are wondering I used 3/4 inch and 1 1/4 inch strips of fabric for the red mug rug.

    You are sew creative, Connie! Once you get ahold of a new idea, there is no stopping you! It's great to see your experiments on the broken herringbone. Both of your table runners are sew sweet!

  12. Fabulous the reds are gorgeous as well.

  13. Love the mug rug, the red batiks work so well in this pattern. Having seen your post the other day I went off and found the QAL. the test block worked well.

  14. You're really churning them out aren't you! I've only made my test block so far and not sure I'll get any more done for a while as I am tied up with hospital visits for two family members for the next couple of weeks. My fingers are getting twitchy though. Love your little table runner!

  22. Love your broken herringbone blocks. So tempting to try one, but I know they would be addictive (right?), so I'd better wait until I get more of my UFO's finished. I love your bright colors in everyone one of your mini quilts.

  23. I love these! I just found the tutorial last night, and these are so striking. I love what you have done with them.

  25. WOW — love that mug rug with it's tiny parts.

  26. Me too. What a strong geometric look. I want a mug rug or three two! Time is everything though… I'm finishing rather than starting… or at least that's my mantra!
