Little Bitty Pretty One

I was listening to a mix CD I'd made for a big-number birthday party I had a few years ago, and this song (post title) came on.  I thought it about summed up my week of making mini quilts and mug rugs.  Here are two more finishes.

This one is for a doctor whose birthday is today.  I think she'll appreciate the dramatic colors (and maybe my stitches, ha).  The butterfly fabric was the inspiration.  It was a little piece about 6 inches square, and too pretty to be left fluttering in the goodie box of scraps.
The back (which I forgot to take a photo of) is Heath in black. Machine quilted in the ditch, and the binding hand stitched.
The center strip for the next one also came from the scrap box, as did the green and purple pieces.  Just a string block, machine quilted in the ditch and around the back cushion of the chair.
The back is a bright green solid, the binding Heath.

I have several more to be finished, but I'm trying to get pieced what I feel inspired to before I put the Singer aside (i.e., probably a trip to the repair shop) and pull the Juki into place for quilting.

Linking to Whoop Whoop Fridays, a bit late, at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

We're off to a big flea market tomorrow, bright and early.  Hope you're having a great weekend!


  1. You're on a roll! Love all the bright colors. May you find lots of flea markets goodies!

  2. So fun! Love them both, but I'm especially drawn to the second one. Love the colors!

    Also, I love Huey Lewis! He's got a really great voice and I hear he's a really nice guy, too.

    xo -E

  3. Love the wee little birds. You really have a knack for design. Putting the chairs diagonally really really added zip to that one.

  4. Huey Lewis- certainly brings back many memories !

    Love that top mug rug. It's certainly my style!

  5. Such a pretty mug rug!! Whoop whoop!!

  6. You've really been going great guns with those gorgeous mug rugs. These are no exception. :-)

    I'm sure the doctor will love hers.

  7. If you were to exchange gifts with a couple of friends for Christmas, one of your friends would sure like a mug rug!
