I love text fabric, and this was perfect for what I wanted to tell my friend. Plus, an added bonus - it fit right in with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colors of yellow and gold for the month of April!
Sharing this at Sandra's DrEAMi linky over at mmmquilts.
There was just enough of the text fabric left to make a bowtie block, too, so that was sewn up.
While I had the yellow scraps out this month, I cut 2.5 inch squares and pieces for HSTs so that I could make a second Scrappy Sprout block in different yellows from the first one.
Finally, I added one more Sawtooth Star to my slowly growing collection! This one has some yellow in its pretty floral center.
And one last thing - earlier this year, I had said that one of my RSC goals this year was to make scrappy placemats for our dining room table, and when I decided on my project for Kelly's Stash Statement blog hop, I knew it would be perfect to help me achieve that goal!

I've enjoyed this month of yellow, and hope you have, too! Sharing at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!
you come up with good ideas for mug rugs and place mats
I'm sure your friend felt the love when you gave her the mug rug. All the other projects looked nice too. You've been busy.
What a darling mug rug! I especially like the little message incorporated into the binding. Love that text fabric.
I have enjoyed your yellow month!
What a sweet and kind gift for your friend! I'm sure she'll appreciate it :)
I'll bet your friend loved this gesture to brighten her day!
Beautiful projects! I love your placemates
What a very thoughtful thing to do. And very cute too. I really like your star blocks a lot! Especially the one you just made. Elegant!
I am sure your friend was thrilled with her unexpected gift. It was so kind of you to think of her, we all do need some extra love sometimes but not every sees it and reaches out. x
Quilty hugs from good friends are always so appreciated. And they continue to bring love and support as they are used. Yellow is such a sunny and happy color :)
I love all your projects! You and yellow did well by each other!
What a great placemat arrangement. The centerpiece really ties it all together. Perfect! So many great yellow blocks this month. Must feel great to have put so many great yellows to use.
What a sweet way to tell a friend you are thinking of them!
I am sure your friend will appreciate your quilty hug for her.
Love that all your Sawtooth Star blocks have flowers. It will make a really special quilt.
So many lovely projects! Your rainbow placemats turned out great!
Lots of pretty yellows for the RSC! So much scrappy goodness.
Love the color combinations in your Sawtooth Stars! And the scrappy placemats look great!
So many lovely quilty things here. What a lovely (DrEAMi) gift for your friend and I really like your scrappy place mats, I might just want to copy that idea.
Wow, you busted a bunch of stash with these fun projects.
Lots of pretty yellow scraps in this week's post. I hope you friend got a nice lift from your quitly hug.
Wow you win the prize for RSC quilter of the month! LOL. Wonderful cheery goodness you created Diann. Thanks for linking up with DrEAMi!
I love the sawtooth stars!
Your placemats are so awesome! And hooray for killing two birds with one stone (ya know, I hate that idiom). Anyway, what a precious mug rug for your lucky friend.
What a sweet placemat for your friend. It looks so pretty with the yellow cup and saucer. Sure to make her smile. Yellows make for happy projects!
Lovely work with your mug rug and all the blocks.
Well done getting the placemats done, too.
