Time In a Bottle Blog Hop

When Carol at Just Let Me Quilt posted for sign up’s I chose to join because I wanted a reason to make these hourglass blocks. I haven’t made to many and I’ve had some trouble with them in the past. So I decided to give them another try.

Making the blocks, I paper pieced them hoping to give myself a chance to be more on point with the blocks. It did help a lot.

So, I made my block into a mug rug. I still have to bind it but honestly, I really don’t like binding. lol

I’m happy with how it turned out and it was fun to make.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day hopping.

  1. So many of my Mug Rugs have never been bound. I have a habit of sewing the backing and batting on inside out and flipping it and sewing the gap shut. Yours is so sweet you need to get it finished one way or another. Too cute not to use.


  2. I would never have thought to paper piece and hourglass block, but wow, it looks so perfect. Your mug rug is beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Theresa!


  3. What a great way to challenge yourself. I do love how paper piecing give you accuracy. Your mugrug is going to always be a great way to remember you DID it. I’m one of those who love to hand bind. Crazy, I know.


  4. Many times when I have found something difficult or intimidating, i would avoid it, but then someone much wiser, advised me to “lean into it”. I’ve found it to be good advice, and it looks as if you have done the same thing. Good for you. Success. Now for the binding(lol)
