Mug Rugs

I had this pile of scraps on the cutting table after working on the cactus top. I didn’t feel like putting them away so I decided to make something with them.

I pulled out this die set from Accuquilt .

I used the die with two inch sides and cut these out of the scraps.

I pieced them together like this.

Then I picked a spot and cut it into two pieces.

Then I rearrange my pieces and sew them back together.

I quilted this with the walking foot on my Juki TL2000. I love this machine for piecing, but I haven’t made friends with the walking foot. Anyone have this machine? I’m open to suggestions!

After quilting, I cut it in half again to make two mug rugs.

Here they are after binding.

Time for coffee!

Have a great day!

    Your scrap attack turned out very well!

  7. Lovely mug rug! I’ve got a Juki TL98P. I use the walking foot from my old Toyota on it because it seems smoother. Having said that, for something as small as a mug rug I find the Juki copes very well without a walking foot believe it or not.

    A very good idea, Katy. Best to use the scraps right then than just let them molder somewhere in the studio. Very cute.

    I love that neat trick of cutting vertically and swapping sides to use every bit of fabric. So clever. And a charming little mug rug made of bits and bobs.

    Oh my gosh! This is so genius! I hate cutting all the fabric off the sides when I use triangles or tumblers. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    Hi Katy,
    Those nested dies look really cool and offer so many useful sizes. Your mug rug turned out really well, and your new longarm should be arriving soon I believe. How exciting! ~smile~ Roseanne
