Pumpkin Mug Rugs

This week's finish is pumpkin mug rugs.  They finish 6 x 8 inches.

The pumpkin is a log cabin block using a variety of orange batik fabrics.

I used some Kona scraps for the stem and a leaf.  Instead of finishing with binding, I flipped the three layers (Hobbs Batting 80/20 in the middle) inside out and top stitched around the edge.

I free-motioned a continuous wonky circle using Aurifil #2150 Pumpkin.  Happy coincidence that the thread is named Pumpkin. 😊

These may stay at the office, or I may gift them.

Here are some weekly link-up parties where you can showcase your finish:

  1. I love it when the thread color names are appropriate for a project. Fun!

  2. Oh I LOVE them!!! what a super cute idea!!!

  3. These are a terrific idea! I'm glad I was able to take pressure off you. :-)

  4. Look at you with the back-to-back fall-themed projects! Orange is such a happy color in my book ... I suspect I'd have to keep both the mug rugs and the pillows for myself! : )
