Pebbled mug rug

Leftover scraps for a mug rug. When I was cleaning my quilt room last week I found the scraps left over from the Lil’ Twister pillow band I made a while ago. You can check out that tutorial HERE.

I didn’t have any of the fabrics left so I thought this little stripe would work. Hmmm, I’m not too crazy about it but I bet one of my granddaughters will really like it.

I went a little crazy with the quilting….first I did a little wiggle,
squiggle line between the blocks…then I did the pebbling in the muslin
squares…………and then I decided to do a little pebble line
diagonally….as you can see I didn’t keep it real straight.

    How very fun, Connie. I've been wondering if pebble quilting is easier on a longarm than on our vintage machines. In any case, it's quite clear I'll need more practice with pebbles before I get good at them!

  10. Very nice mug rug, Connie. Love the bright colors and quilting. I must try pebbling quilting.

  11. I love the mug rug! I think they are so much fun. I have only done one and it was not perfect, but my DIL thought it was wonderful! I think it will be a great way to practice fMQ. Now to put more together.
    I enjoyed all the local pictures over the weekend. They really get you in the mood for summer.
