Mug Rug Madness!

In honor of the New Year, I've decided to finish up a bunch of my old projects that have been dormant for the past few months.  This means no new projects until my old ones are finished!

One of my ongoing battles has been how to manage my project scraps.  I originally considered making a mini-quilt with each project's scraps, but that idea fell by the wayside.  I decided on quick, easy and practical alternative...a mug rug!

For South Florida Mod's January meeting, we are making mug rugs for a swap.  Here are two citrus-themed mug rugs made from the scraps of a citrus-themed baby quilt I'm making (more to come in a future post):

Log cabin-ish blocks, each measuring about 6" by 9".

Simple geometric quilting.  Lemon-licious!

Orange-y sunrise.

I also found a bag of tiny scraps from THIS quilt I made with Kate Spain fabric (the Central Park collection).  I loved this fabric line, and I was able to make two ultra-scrappy mug rug tops with the leftover bits and pieces!

Tiny scraps (each about 1.5" and 4" long)!
Tops complete...just need to add a backing and batting.
Scrappy mug rug top #1.

Love the tiny turtle!

What does everyone else do with their tiny scraps?

  1. Seriously cute mug rugs!! I love the flamingo in the last set. Your colors are great. Glad the Modern Guild is humming along, but we do miss your smiling face! ox
