Too much cutting apart and not enough sewing back together can make a sane person insane so I worked on a couple mug rugs this morning and then went back to cutting.

Yes, there are chunks of my mat missing and yes, it is time to buy a new one.

This tiny Dresden (yes, that is a hexie in the middle...who wants to make perfect circles?) will go on a blue background and be backed with a sunflower fabric that matches the golds and blue.

Can you believe this is a disappearing 4 patch? It was super easy...finding the proper backing will be harder than it was to make the block!

Very cool little dresden! I have a blue mat that looks worse then that - the magenta is worse then my blue. But, I do have a brand new extra-large green! Hmmm, what color am I missing? Oh, yeah, I have a very old tan one - use it as a machine mat.

Did you design the pattern for the mug rug? if so, can you share a tutorial? I really like it!

Girl you are a genius! A hexie for the center of a dresden plate. Now why did I not think of that. Luckily for me, I follow your blog!!!

love the first one and re trhe disappearing 4 patch, is this 4 squares then cut into half and half again the put back together? very effective, another one to add to my try list.
