The rotary cut Arrowhead block. It's fun, it's EASY, it's addicting, and it practically makes itself! You have GOT to try this block! Two 10'' layer cake pieces make a 12'' block. These two blocks were leftover from a project I'm working on with a layer cake of ''Dandelion Girl'' (I just LOVE Fig Tree's colors!) I had insomnia this morning and got up at 4am, LOL. I wanted to get right to sewing this morning and couldn't because hubby was sleeping still! He finally got up and left for hunting about 8am, so I whipped this up in less than 10 minutes. Seriously, less than 10 minutes! A person could whip up a whole quilt top with this technique easily in one day!
before it was squared up:
after it was trimmed:
and here are some ''mug rugs'' I whipped up yesterday. The tree I embroidered on my embroidery machine (design is from Embroidery Library). I'm not thrilled with calling them 'mug rugs' - I think 'cup quilts' better suits them, LOL.
The black/white damask one I'm keeping for myself, and the green one (I made two like that) is going to go in a gift giveaway with 2 Christmas mugs. These are a lot of fun to make - a tiny little quilt and you can practice different quilting techniques with them! The green ones I did a swirly quilt design and I like it a lot! I went with the old stand-by stipple in mine though. Gotta love stipple :)
