Hot Pink and Scrappy


Hot Pink and Scrappy

Is it a Mug Rug?
Is it a Mouse Pad?
Who Cares?  It's Hot Pink and Scrappy.

Today is the ONLY day since Dec 21 that we have not had holiday company.  The hubby is out chopping and splitting wood and I HAD to get my Block of the Month completed before Wednesday- 2 blocks this month- and I hadn't started.

We attended church last night so this morning was delightfully leisurely. 
I drank coffee.
And more coffee.
And had eggs and waffles 
as I read the blogs.
I found this- 
And I happen to have scraps, believe it or not.

So,
I cut and sewed my two blocks.
Then pulled out hot pink
and flowers
and buttons.

Now, I have a mouse pad
or 
a breakfast bar sized mug rug.
Either way- 
it works.

And I'll have my Hot Pink for January!

Happy New Year!

Very cute!! Your leisurely morning sounds wonderful! :)

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Actually not as cute as it is pink! It's just strips that were cut in a wonky fashion and pieced together. Fast and quick but works well on the breakfast bar!

I live for Saturday mornings (or Sunday if we go to church on Saturday night). I will even get up at 6 or 6:30 just to sit and drink coffee for an hour or so.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Thanks. I'm practicing doing the quilting myself so I'm piecing little things and working on the quilting before I do a bigger one.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

I'm still working on two block of the month quilts- one very complicated so I like to do quick, simple things. Also trying to practice the quilting part.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

I suddenly have lots of scraps, ever since the quilt shop cleaned out their back room and put bags and bags of pieces and parts on sale at a very good price.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Thanks. I'm just messing around trying to figure out what things will look like put together and then quilted. It had a very different look just being pieced.

The RSC is a great way to use up all of those bits and pieces and make something wonderful with them.

Elly D said...

Deb said...

Great little quilt with scraps. The Rainbow scrap challenge is really fun - I am on year 3 I think.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

I am in the middle of another trivet with pink in it.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Thank you!

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

I'm very new to the quilting part of making a quilt. I thought this might be good practice.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

It is pretty much fun. I like the quick projects so I keep the bigger ones from getting to routine.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

I think I may try to participate at least once a month.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Thanks- so far it's a mug rug

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

My quilt shop cleaned out the back room and had bags of scraps for a pretty good price. I got some interesting things.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

If I would have know about it earlier it would have been a great time to make blocks for an entire quilt, but I've got 2 big ones going now.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

I love seeing what everyone does
