This and That – More “Sides”

Here are some of the “side” projects I’ve been working on over the last month or so.

“Side” meaning small quickies, that aren’t my goal UFOs (Unfinished Objects).

The “Jugs” Rug

In June we started a mug rug swap at Quilters Anonymous.  QA is a chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild (AQG) and the one I’m a member of.

I didn’t make a patriotic mug rug to swap in July, but when they announced that “summer” would be the theme for the August swap, I already knew what I’d bring.

This is the first block I made from the Bikini Quilt Pattern by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.

Even though it’s larger than your usual mug rug, I thought it perfect for the Summer themed swap.

Can you see why I’ve dubbed it The “Jugs” Rug?

Thanks for stopping by.

Mo Better Blues

After not really feeling my first batch of mug rugs, I decided not to use any of the original Asian fabric after all.

I instead chose these blues, which still give off an Asian vibe. I like these much better.  
In addition to the Mock Logs block, I made one called Forest Paths. Both patterns are from Quilt Blocks Galore aka Quilter’s Cache.a955d188-3978-45ea-a379-8c5c9fc5f4f4

It was quite the chore binding the first block, so I opted for a quick turn/birthing method on the second one.  This suited me much better and it’ll be my method of choice for finishing any/all mug rugs I make in the future.72868755-17ca-4e7c-9bca-6c4ca33eb81f



Done, given, and loved!
