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?
