Half Square Triangles = Mug Rug

quilts, triangulations

Just  last week I posted a tutorial on how to use the triangulations that I was practicing.  I had 24 half square triangles to make use of so I made a mug rug from them and practiced straight line machine quilting with it.  I forgot to post it


Just the right size to add a small snack to it or to place a cup of tea on a saucer to catch spills – you don’t want to get it stained up too fast Smile the great things about these mug rugs though is the size – so fast to put these little babies together.  The lines aren’t perfectly straight but not too bad.


We had more rain today but not bad rain – only heavy a couple times and not as heavy as it had been.  It is actually supposed to clear out in another hour and the sun come out for the next couple of days – I hope!!

The winners of the AQS quilt show in Paducah are posted.  Go HERE to see the winning quilts.  There are some really neat ones like usual.  I really like the applique on this ONE by Deborah Kemball – I liked it enough that I search for a book by her and ordered one this morning Smile more inspiration you know.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)
