Gifts for Mim from Random Thoughts... do or "di"

This week is my week to switch my creative hats. I will not be sewing this week but instead will be working on my scrapbooks. I will be in Seattle all week at my dear friend's house. My friend Monika and I will travel to Mim's where we will eat, talk, drink, talk and oh yeah...scrapbook. Mim and her husband spoil us with their incredible hospitality so it is only natural that I try to spoil her by making a few things that she has hinted at liking.

Giving a handmade gift is one of my favorite ...

Quilt Kisses from MMM Quilts

Yesterday I mentioned all the secret sewing that has been going on over here, and today I can show you one of the projects because it arrived at its new owner's house!  It is one of two DrEAMi! projects that took my focus away from what I should have been doing this month.

This is Quilt Kisses.  You might think, hey, wait a minute, isn't there a blog in QBL by that name?  Yup.  And that is exactly where this mug rug went, to Jasmine, of Quilt Kisses.

Last May I was part of Lara's, Buzzin' Bumble ...

In this tutorial, I’m going to teach you how to make this super cute heart mug rug. I’ve made mine in red, white and pinks, giving off a major Valentine’s Day vibe, but you could easily swap up the colours for a totally different look all year round.

Create a mug rug using passport 3.0’s decorative stitches from Quilt Social

 

Spring is in the air! The first fun holiday of the season is almost here – St. Patrick’s Day! In yesterday’s post I went on a stitch adventure with PFAFF’s passport 3.0 and used many of the preset stitches to make a selvege stitch sampler.

I was inspired by the hearts of February to re-purpose them into shamrocks for March. Today I’m going to add a shamrock to my stitch sampler and make it into a mug rug.

Mug Rug from MMM Quilts

My love-affair with scraps is well-known.  I showed you the flimsy of the 6" square I made with scraps from the rainbow scrappy binding for Whirling Stars.  Here is the mug rug I just had to finish up this past week.

I honestly do not believe I have ever bound a quilt with a yellow binding, especially one this vibrant. It's another sneak peek at one of the fabrics responsible for my 10-day posting hiatus.  I did an X through the two main diagonal lines of the mug rug and then...couldn't stop.

A MUG RUG FOR A VALENTINE'S PRESENT from Q-BITS

It's been over a month since I last posted.  Not much quilting has gone on.  I've been working on making doll clothes for an 18" doll for a charity donation project.  It did include a doll quilt --- more on that in the future.  I hope to get back to quilting regularly in the next week or so ----

I took an afternoon off from the doll clothes to make a mug rug for my granddaughter for a Valentine's present to use in her office.
Fun fabrics were from the Loralie Harris fabric line.  I discovered her studio recently ...

Kiss Me Quick, Valentine!!! from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
If you're looking for a quick gift idea
from the heart, for someone who's sweet,


This pattern is very versatile, which is great news.
This is an example of a clean and simple design,
using one single fabric for the front.


 I had all of the supplies on hand...
this mug rug started out as two 10" layer cake squares
from Sweetwater's "First Crush" line for Moda.


I used a charming label from Sweetwater,
to put into words exactly what I was thinking.
This ...

Valentine Mug Rug Tutorial from Thread Head

This is the next in my series of Mug Rug tutorials - perfect for Valentines Day or a Wedding Anniversary (like mine - our anniversary is in less than a week - my husband asked if this was his anniversary present).


This is using the hexagon shaped mug rug base from another tutorial (I said I would be having more tutorials for that shape) - Hexagon Shaped Mug Rug Tutorial.
I used a 5" radius for this hexagon, the finished mug rug is 10" point to point and about 8.5" straight edge to straight edge.

This is the most simple appliqué, and any ...

Love Bug Mug Rug from Quilt Doodle Doodles



Valentine's Day is right around the corner and here in Minnesota I needed a fun project to brighten up my day. It's soooo gloomy outside. So I spent the afternoon making a couple of 'Love Bug Mug Rugs'. This was a quick and easy project. I dug thru my stash and found a couple of fat quarters, one pink and one blue. (Just for fun!) I was able to make two mug rugs, along with the binding out of these two fat quarters. I found some scrap fabric for the design that matched my fabrics. This goofy bug ...

Scrap Fabric Mug Rug Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

Scrap fabric mug rugs - this is so smart. I have a ton of scrap fabric that need to be used. Love the idea of using one color per mug rug.

Scrap Fabric Mug Rugs

This past month I participated in a mug rug exchange at a local quilt group I attend.  After digging around for a little bit, I realized that I had more than enough fabric in the scrap bin to make something with.

That’s the beauty of the mug rug.  They are small and simple and don’t need a super ton of fabric.

Plus, they are done in no time flat!

Today I thought I’d share how quickly this can be made using your fabric scraps and if you have a bit hanging around– they ...
