Fussy Cut Heart Mug Rug Roundup

Along with my love for Liberty London fabric, last year I discovered how fun it was to make mug rugs. It was a quick project I could finish in an afternoon and a great scrapbuster as well. With Valentine’s day around the corner, I thought I would show you a few that I finished last year using a fussy cut heart mug rug pattern I developed to showcase some of my favorite prints.

My first attempt at a miniature quilt was using a precious Liberty Hello Kitty scrap. The finished block measures approximately 4.75″ x 4.75″. More details in my post here.

For all my mug rugs I used this walking foot and this batting leftover from my DIY quilted jacket. The walking foot really helped the fabric move together evenly with the batting.

My next rug mug measured 6.75″x 6.75″ because I wanted to fussy cut the center to fit this precious Heather Ross goldfish print.

Then I tried making a larger mug rug in conjunction with my heart pattern so I could set my mug down and still see this Heather Ross mermaid focal point. I loved how this one turned out!

Around Christmas I thought of making some mug rugs by piecing scraps together to fit my mug rug pattern pieces. See more details here and here.
