Mug Rugs-Pink Saturday

Please stop over to our hostess sweet Beverly and check out all the other linked blogs

Mug rugs, yes I found out they are addicting to make, here's two more.
This is the zig zag  pattern...now if someone would just make me a scone with some devonshire cream and jam, I'd be all set, I can put a pot on.

This was with Joel Dewberry's fabric.  I had a bunch of half square triangles left over from a quilt I'd made.
The next one is a photograph I took in my garden of a monarch landed on my coneflower and I printed it on fabric, isn't that cool.
Amy Butler binding, don't you just love those dots.
I happen to put this tiny quilt on the long arm, just for fun and quilted one of Anne Bright's fill patterns.
I thought the colors and detail were really amazing for a digital photograph and then printed to fabric.  My daugther mentioned see loves butterflys when I showed her, so this may end up being a birthday gift for February's girl....shhh don't tell her.
These mug rugs remind me of a potholder or journal art quilt or a miniture doll quilt...another fun way to use of scraps and try new techniques and fantastic for those who want a little "instant" gratification!!
Hugs, Michelle

Those are really neat! I think it's awesome that you printed your own photo onto the fabric! ;) I've got a Homemaking Link-Up Weekend going on today (and every weekend) and this would be just perfect if you'd like to link up! Look for the post about "A Mommy of 8 Does Get Her Quiet Time".

Don't you just love it when you have scrap leftovers to make something so pretty and useful? I enjoy my scrap box almost as much as a new piece of fabric...sometimes even more! I like the idea of getting something for nothing....almost like free!

Great job on the quilting, too. Well done...Happy Pink Saturday!

Fiddle. Looks like a bunch of internet problems today - one thing or another is weird. My comment disappeared into error-land! Anyway - great post. I have been interested in printing on fabric - curious to see how it's done. And your mug rugs are great! Love the butterfly! Thanks, Jenn
