|Mug Rug #1|
For my second one, I decided to try something a little different. I had never done quilt-as-you-go, but the book with the pumpkin in it also had a pattern for a reversible table runner done by QAYG. A reversible mug rug sounded fun, especially since my partner experiences the seasons opposite to me here in Newfoundland. So even though it is fall here, she is in the middle of spring.
For the fall side, I chose this fabulous pumpkin fabric I've had in my stash for a long, long time and made the small log cabin block in coordinating colours.

I enjoyed the QAYG method, especially since it used by some of the small batting scraps I can't usually find a use for. I'm not sure I'd want to make a big quilt this way, but it's kind of fun for smaller projects.
Did you notice? Even the binding is reversible! It took a little figuring, since I usually make double-fold binding and this is single-fold, and my first attempt was way too wide. I had to rip out the seam, trim some from each side and the stitch it back on, but I was pleased with how it turned out in the end.
Finish-a-Long items finished!
