Learning New Things

Sometimes I like to play around and mug rugs are a perfect way to try new ideas without a huge commitment of time and materials.

Do really BRIGHT and LOUD colors work together?

Can I make flying geese and how in the world should I quilt them?

I love wonky stars... can I make one to fit a mug rug?

How hard can something like this be?  (Answer: Not hard, just time-consuming... there has to be an easier way!)

First give-away: a layer cake of "Soiree" by Lila Tueller for Moda. 


Second give-away:   3 Kaffe Fassett FQs and an "idea" journal.

Thought you all would like to know...  


  1. Wow these are all great and you got so much done! You do a really good job of putting colors together. I made some rugs, but still have to quilt and bind them. Maybe this afternoon and tonight I can finish them.

    Here is a link to a Flicker account with some mug rugs to browse I just keep hitting the right arrow.

  2. Yes, you did the flying geese and they looks great, by the way the other mug rugs looks great too;0)
    And aren't we never to old to learn?
    Have a nice Sunday, Roos

  3. They really are all great! I love the colors in the wonky star. I hope your Sunday is wonderful!

  4. I love your mug rugs. They are works of art. BTW I got 2 mugs yesterday. Hope and Joy. Thanks for the info. Hugs

  5. Super cute! These are tiny works of art!

  6. I love them all. Don't you want one of each?

  7. This is a great way to try out new things!

  8. I love your practice quilting! Have you tried utilizing free motion on a mug rug yet? You could have just plain muslin, put in dark thread and "go to town"!

  9. Love the new mug rugs!! The colors are wonderful.
