Pinwheel mug rug

My latest creation for the Mug Rug Revival swap over on Flickr. I am going to be sorry to post this mug rug off.

I started off with this design in my head, and then I found this quilt and decided pinwheel flowers could be fun.

3D pinwheel quilt

The pinwheel tutorial is at the Moda Bake Shop but uses larger pieces of fabric than I wanted so I decided to wing it, oh those seams were thick! But I think the -almost- finished result is worth it.

A bit different from the original idea (especially when I sewed the green fabric on to the short edge on a whim).

3D without the glasses

I will be taking this with me to a craft group lunch meeting that meets just across the library from the door to my office (don't get me started on how fantastic that is). Just the last of the binding to sew down and then this one will be flying away to my partner, hope they like it as much as I do!

Linking up (for my first ever linky thing) with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.



  1. SOOO Cute!! The pinwheels are adorable :-) What a lucky partner you have in the swap to be receiving this!
