Mad For Fabric Mini Heart Quilt

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.

I saw this Darling Little Dickens collection by Lydia Nelson for Moda fabrics and thought it would be perfect for my fussy cut heart mug rug pattern. I love this bunny and rabbit combination!  You can see the other mug rugs I made using this pattern here, here, and here.

Mad For Fabric - Scrappy Fussy Cut Heart Christmas Mug Rug

Scrappy Fussy Cut Heart Mug Rug

I’ve been wanting to make a Christmas mug rug but the Cotton and Steel Tinsel 2″ strips I had weren’t big enough to fit my fussy cut heart mug rug pattern. In an aha moment I realized I could just sew the strips together to make it the size I needed. Here I blended in a teal dot fabric and 2 different neutral prints. I used the green ornament print to increase the size of the center piece too. This is such a great way to use up small scraps and add more variety of prints to your mug rug. I love how this turned out! You can see the other mug rugs I made using this pattern here and here.

I made another heart block and with a slightly larger fussy cut square this time. I love how Tula Pink’s octopus pairs so well with Heather Ross seahorses!

If you want to make a mug rug of your own, I created a digital pattern for this quilt block in 2 sizes available in my Etsy shop here. I’m terrible cutting accurately so I’ve provided templates in my pattern to make the sizes as accurate as possible.

Tula Pink Chipper Mug Rug

I wanted to practice my mini heart block again and this time I used fabrics from Tula Pink’s Chipper line.  You can read about my previous mini heart blocks here, here, and here. My binding is still a little crooked but practice makes perfect right?

I love how this fox mug rug turned out! The color combination paired with Art Gallery fabrics turned out better than I thought it would.
