My Desert Bloom HSTs, leftover from the X's and O's table runner, turned into these coasters (or maybe I could call them mug rugs).
I found this fun fabric in my stash that reminds me of fireworks for the backing and binding. These measure about 6 x 6.
I also made one more Marvelous Monday Mini block, pattern coming from Temecula Quilt Company.
And one other scrappy thing... I've worked with a lot of low volume scraps recently - in my log cabin quilt and my string star project. I use up the long pieces quickly, and am left with lots of chunks. I've been wondering what to do with those chunks!
Then I saw THIS, friends. It is a beautiful mini quilt made by Teje at Nero's Post, made with a low volume background and raw edge appliqued flowers. I love it, and want to make something similar, inspired by Teje's work. Perfect for those leftover chunks that don't really work in string piecing.
I started by sorting out all of the chunks from my black and white scrap bin, matching up pairs that were similar in size, and sewing them together.
After a little trimming, I was able to match up similar size pairs into groups of four, and so on, until I ended up with this nice piece! It measures about 13.5 x 5.5. Not very big, really, but probably a good size for me to experiment with some applique on! I think I'll have fun looking through my colorful scraps for pieces to make stems, leaves, and flowers.
