A Tiny Project

Remember the scrapsof Blueberry Park I had leftover after my mini Dresden Fan Quilt?

I decided they would make a nice little mug rug. As a reminder. I cut my scrapsnto 2 1/4 inch strips and then used this ruler to cut the tumbler shapes.

Lining up like this means no seams to match.

I quilted this with simple horizontal lines.

And I trimmed the backing to just a half inch larger all around , folded it under twice and top stitched it down for a tiny mock binding.

Time for a cup of joe and some biscuits!

Have a great day!

    Katy, I love this little mug rug!!!
    I did not comment the least few days, but I did want to say that I love all the various layouts with your HST blocks….I don’t know which I would choose…and, there are probably more options as well! I know that whatever you decide to use will be great!!
