Sewing day..........

My 2 friends came over for a day of sewing and lunch out yesterday.  I worked on several things, none far enough along to take photos.   Last night while watching TV I went through my pieces and parts drawers and pulled out everything that is a potential mug rug top.
A lot of them just need one or two more strips added to be large enough to square up.






Most of the pieces are made of batik fabric.









I would say that most of these pieces were made between 3 and 6 years ago.







I will probably work on these in the evening and my other larger projects during the day.  I'll show some more pieces and parts tomorrow.

Isn't it fun to use up the smaller stuff and make into something useful. Creative minds at work all the time. Chris

We are thinking alike Wanda!! I've been working with batiks on mug rugs too! Your pieces are beautiful!

Christine said...

Wanda, do you iron the seams open on those little pieces and parts? or just press them to one side as you sew?

It is funny how we save pieced parts not knowing what will become of them. Then one day, we say "I will make....."
Those will be delightful.

Nice batik pieces! You can make so called portrait quilting where some face is visible through the pattern of small pieces!
