A Quick Fix

Man, the hobbies I’ve got aren’t really “quick” are they?

When it comes to the Log Cabin Quilt, I’m still pressing, trimming and squaring up to the right size. I know it’s going to be worth it when I get to actually put the thing together but tonight I decided I needed something fast and fun!

This is what I came up with!

A little mug rug. I used some leftover 5″ squares I had laying around from back in the day. I cut one in half and sewed it to the other one with a 1/4″ seam. I then got some scrap batting, scrap backing and quilted that bad boy together as fast as you can say “coaster”.

I used this as an opportunity to practice some straight line quilting. I also used some scrap binding I still had and practiced my machine binding technique using the Red Pepper Quilts tutorial.

I think I’m going to have to do a few more small projects to get some practice in and use up some scraps! A few more mug rugs? Maybe some place mats?

What’s your favorite small project?
