Design Wall Monday - Mug Rug A Palooza

That's Ting Ting's hiney in the background. She saw a squirrel and wouldn't move out of the shot!

Five pretty ladies, all in a row. I had a lot of fun whipping these things up this weekend. I still have to put binding on, but I really like how they turned out.  Might make one more....

I really love the Japanese X block - it's a fun block to put together. It requires a lot of precision cutting and piecing and you can tell in the one farthest to the right in the top picture that the seams for the X in the middle weren't matched well.  I love the scrappiness and the freedom this block allows when choosing colors and prints. Pretty much anything goes and the more mismatched you make the fabrics, the cuter this block looks.

I'm working on a tutorial on making the 60-degree triangle mug rug today - will post that in the next few days. Loving that tool fo sho.

Also, the folks at Generation Q Magazine have announced that they're going to print! Very exciting stuff. Go check out their Kick Start initiative. Pledge some start up money for the company and get some swag in return. It's a win-win situation.


  1. Those are great Andie! I love the second picture...the doggy in the background is especially great ;o)

  2. My you've been busy!! They all look fab :)

  3. Love the pics of your mug rugs. Every one of them is great! Even better, I like seeing that you have snow... and we don't! For a change. It snowed Sunday, and sleeted a little too, but it's gone now. And hoorah, Tuesday is supposed to be 68 degrees... in Iowa! Goodness me! I won't be quilting; I'll be washing my VW Bug in the driveway.

  4. Great mug rugs, sounds like a fun swap. You've got a lot going on, lady! Never mind the whackadoos....think of it this way...you're SO popular, even the clueless spammers want to get their 2 cents in.

    And smile. There. Better?
    Keep on Keepin' on.

  5. Love the mug rugs... happy mug rugs...

  6. Very nice! Love the NY Beauty..heck, I love them all!
