In February I made mug rugs for all the Asheville participants. Now my dear friend, craftylittlemonkey, has been nagging me to post photos of the collection so the craftsters have a thread to post their individual loot to.



A few of the mug rugs are simply rough strip piecing (nothing precisely cut or stitched, just down and dirty) but most use the crumbs quilt technique. Each of those use pieces as small as 3/4" square or larger. It's similar to a crazy quilt but much more random and no fancy embroidery used. The crumb quilts take much more time to complete and have between 13-30 pieces. Finished size = 6 1/2" x 9 1/2".

Happy, TJ?

YES KATHY, THAT MAKES ME VERY HAPPY!!! Cheesy LOL

You got the strawberry one Jennie? I totally noticed that little bitty strip of berry fabric and I wanted it. I went for rainbow though, and Rob liked the bees on the one he chose for himself.


I love those wonky scrappy ones so much. They deserve a post in the destash thread for SURE!

I just included that bee one in a package to somebody who didn't have a chance to join us in Asheville and really, really wanted to. It's not easy giving up a special treasure but I have a feeling she is going to love it, not just getting the parcel of goodies but that mug rug in particular Smiley.
