I finished it! What a fun and easy project this was and I used up some of my recycled sheet stash. I machine quilted it.
I used a delicate pink stripe sheet for the binding.
And a pretty pink rose sheet for the backing. The only thing I had to buy was the quilt batting. It's so soft already.
Remember the vintage hexie squares I showed you a few weeks ago? I experimented and made a mug rug.
I guess I got kind of carried away. I love bringing new life to these pretty hexies. Aren't they cute all strung in a row?
Each one was hand sewn and made of different fabrics. The fabrics are from the 1930's or 40's. I made little mug quilts and added a backing and batting and then machine quilted around the edges. I'll be listing these in my Etsy shop later this week, so go take a look. These would make great little gifts or stocking stuffers. I know I'll be making more of these-so fun!
Another look at the morning glory, just about to bloom. Each day I love to look at the purple and pink flowers it gives.
Even though my mind is on fall, it still feels like summer here. I hope you have a great week ahead. Happy Labor Day!
