This is my day to share on the No Rings hop hosted by Carla of Creatin' in the Sticks.
We've seen some fantastic mug rugs!! I've certainly enjoyed--and been awed by--all that I have seen.
I took the easy way out this time. 😀
I had used part of a panel for another project and had several small parts left.
"What perfect mug rugs these will make!" I said to myself. (I hope others of you talk to yourself while sewing--don't make me feel all alone in this!)
Sew, gathering some scraps from other projects for the borders, I put together these 3 mug rugs.
I love fall colors and these look great (if I do say so myself) on my oak table and/or anywhere else during this fall season.
For those who like to see FMQ, I used a variegated Madiera Aeroquilt thread that I have used for several years, color 9600, 40 wt. The colors in it are perfect for fall.
I did a leaf and loop FMQ for the pumpkin.
The acorns and leaf were loops.
The berry bunches are meandered.
Those are my projects. It's amazing what we quilters can think of for our scraps and leftovers.
Thanks for looking at my blog!
