Last week I had to make a quick gift for my grandson’s teacher and a mug rug came to mind.
Part of my stash consists of other people’s orphan blocks and UFOs and I remembered having something that would make a great mug rug for a male teacher.
About 15 mins later I had 2 completed mug rugs. My grandson chose the one on the right.
Since it only took me 15 mins to make them, I decided to make a couple more.
And then I dug a little deeper and got all kinds of excited when I came across these 4 matching log cabin blocks that I promptly sewed together to become a future hand quilted pillow cover!
I almost forgot this lovely OP-UFO! This will soon become a wall hanging!
I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas.

I love all the the things you made from orphans. Hugs,
After my mother passed away, I took her orphan blocks and made mug rugs and chicken pincushions. I gave them to my siblings and cousins to remind them of her. She would have loved it! I think of her whenever I use mine!
You have some wonderful orphans. I love what you are doing with them.
That makes me want to review my orphan blocks. They make good pot holders, too.
Love the log cabin blocks. Can’t wait to see the quilting on your UFO…it’s so bright and colourful.
looks like you found lots of inspiration when you dug out the orphan blocks ^^
