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!|
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?
