Fabric Tuesday!!

It's Tuesday again, and over at Quiltstory they're having Fabric Tuesday! Go ahead and check it out.

Here's my fabric Tuesday! This week I received my swap partners for the Mug Rug Swap, and the Scrappy Pincushion Swap. So I've gotten to work a bit on both. I'm really addicted to making these tiny quilt mug rugs if you didn't notice. For the most part, mine finish at about 5" x 7" - 7" x  9". Yes that's large enough for a big mug and a cookie or two (and so you can still enjoy all that quilting! Also a great size for framing if one should want to.
Here's my first pic...
Some of the hand stitching added... not done yet...
Another one, totally out of my normal realm... off-white and tiny flowers. Cute. That AMH Little folks was just begging to be added.
Two little tiny chicks for the pincushion swap.
The chickies are made with a pattern from AMH's book "Handmade Beginnings" (Henny Penny & Chicks pattern), but I added a gusset to the chicks so they'd stand flat. Since the wings are made from the soft side of Velcro I decided just for the pic, to sew together two scraps of the other side of Velcro to stick them together... instant PEEPS! lol. How cool? They measure just under 2" tall. Probably not too useful as pincushions, but cute!


  1. How cute is that? I want to make a tiny tiny project! Love it. Thanks for linking!

  2. That is a fantastic idea!!! They are so cute and so practical! (Better than just a coaster!) I would probably have at least 5 cookies... better make one a little bigger. ;) Thanks for sharing!

    Coming from Quiltstory. :) and following along!

  3. Adorable! I'm going to have to make a few of these...
