Last Saturday was National Quilting Day. So, I thought I would stop all that piecing and sewing and quilt something. Something easy. Easy and quick. Nothing like instant gratification to put a smile on your face.
I started with this little mug rug. (It could be a mini wall hanging.)
I fussy cut the cup from this fabric. I love it!!
Simple Log Cabin style. As I was just about finished and ready for the last round, I remembered my American Jane fabric had similar flowers as those around the tea cup. And what do you know. They were perfect. Quilting was a few straight lines. Didn’t want to quilt the tea cup.
This is the back.
Now just have to decide what to use for the binding. Probably the yellow.
Next I quilted this table mat. Triple wavy lines.
I created the mat months ago… from all those small scrap pieces I have lots of. To bring a bit of order to the scrappiness, I purposely mixed in the yellow tape measure fabric here and there.
The back is just as functional as the front. Tired of the front? Flip it.
For the binding, if I have enough, I will use the yellow tape measure fabric.
Lastly, I quilted something I started months ago. A ticker tape little quilt with the raw edged pieces sewn on top of pre-quilted white fabric.
It was the 2nd one I made and had planned to finish it and put both in my Etsy shop. BUT the first took so long to make (after I kept adding stuff), that I was plum tuckered out and didn’t finish the second one. It ended up in the dust collecting UFO pile. Quilting was diagonal lines following the pattern of the pre-quilted fabric.
This is what the first one looks like finished.
Now I wish I had put the Go Green on the second one. Kinda cute, huh?
So… that is how I spent last Saturday, National Quilting Day.
What all did you do? Do tell.
