Project Quilting 8: The Brighter the Better

We are already at challenge number 4 in Season 8 of Project Quilting and so far, I've been having a great time with these.  Nothing like a super tight deadline to get the creative juices flowing (and increase your stress level just a bit!).

This week, the theme is "The Brighter the Better" - we were encouraged to use bright colours for our quilted project.

I thought about it for a little bit, but then it dawned on me that I wanted to make more mug rugs (they are seriously so fun) to have on hand for quick presents or raffle prizes at Montreal MQG meetings. What could be more fun than a rainbow of mug rugs?  Nothing!  :-)


I made small slabs in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple.  Each one measures 7 inches wide by 6 inches high and I quilted them with organic wavy lines with the walking foot.


Every one of them made with nothing but scraps - even the binding and the backing.

That means I have now completed 13 scrappy projects so far this year.  Yay me!  And here's my pink mug rug from a couple of weeks ago hanging out with the new mug rugs.  Nice set don't you think?



I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at A Quarter Inch from the Edge for TGIFF this week.

Those are so fun! A lot of work, but so nice to have a few extra gifts around. This challenge was a lot less stressful.

Gotta love some rainbow scrap busting. That little stack of mug rugs makes me smile. This is the first I've heard of Project Quilting (I must live under a rock). Does one have to participate in all challenges to be eligible? Thanks for linking up with TGIFF!

So nice to see all the color. Have to make our own "garden" in the middle of winter.

What a beautiful set! The kids and I have decided to make mug rugs for teacher gifts this year. I'll have to share your pictures with them. I love the scrappy monochromatic look!
