Friday Finish - A Wee bit of the Irish!

I know, St. Patrick's Day was last week! So was my mini mini swap with the Do Bees. But I was blogging about other shenanigans last Friday, so this wee bit of the green got bumped!

In the last year, we've been working toward more sewing as a group. Our first project was a FQ swap back in September. This time, we went for a mini mini.... or a mug rug, depending on who you talked to. In honour of St. Patrick's Day, it had to include some green.  As soon as we started talking about this swap, I knew I wanted to make another version of the mini mini I made for Q-D. This pattern by Tiny Toffee Designs is just SO much fun!
It's always fun to pull fabric for a mini mini. You can use all your favs without fear of using them up! I went for some C+S for the background and the wee heart. The linen-y green of the mug is a RK print (I think). 
I quilted this one in radiating straight lines. I might even like it better than what I did on Q-D's version.

You can really see the quilting on the back. And you can admire this lovely Lizzy House print! It's also the flying geese on the front and as the binding.

Here's the whole collection! Mine's the miniest! ☺

I can hardly wait to get started on our next adventure - a round robin! I'm linking up today at TGIFF @ Anja Quilts, as well as at Finish Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts.



  1. I don't think I noticed the quilting in person. I like that it radiates. I really like that it's a mug...especially since some called them mug rugs. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF hosted @ Anja Quilts.

  2. I have a practical mindset, so a mug rug--especially showing a mug--seems to be useful indeed.

  3. That's such a cute Mini-Mini Jenn! The collection of them look so great together too. I bet you have a blast with the round robin!

  4. Super cute, love the heart and mini flying geese!

  5. I do love that your mug rug has a mug on it! The radiating lines work so well for the quilting. Is Q-D jealous? ;)

  6. Really like the quilting and the group photo of all the greens is lovely!

  7. I love the Irish coffee mug.
    A round robin soon? Yay!
