|A LITTLE MUG RUG TO GO WITH THE SCRAPPY TWISTED NEW BEGINNINGS QUILT|
I MADE THIS USING THE LEFTOVER SQUARES YOU END UP WITH WHEN MAKING
A LIL TWISTER QUILT.

Sorry for the rushed post last night......... but a girl just can't miss Barnaby!! and it was the final episode for this season:-(
Now to explain a little more about the Scrappy Twisted New Beginnings quilt......
I am participating in the current Quilting Gallery New Beginnings Mini Quilt Swap (so this is not a quilt you have to vote for but thanks for all of the lovely comments!!)
I have owned the Lil Twister Ruler for quite some time but have never used it so when I put my thinking cap on about what to make for this Swap, it seemed the perfect project....
1. It's a New Beginning for me..... ACTUALLY using something I have bought at the Craft Show!!
2. To make a Lil Twister quilt, you first piece up so many squares with a border and then YOU CUT THE WHOLE THING UP AGAIN using the Lil Twister Ruler! So, you see???.... yes, a New Beginning for the quilt top!!
3. Once the cutting up is done, you end up with lots of little squares leftover which I trimmed down to 2" square and pieced up into a little Mug Rug! Yes, you can see there is a trend here.... yet another New Beginning for those squares!! I even pieced the back of the Mug Rug using the leftover rectangles that you end up with after cutting into the borders but I forgot to take a picture!
I had lots of fun making this quilt and I will certainly be making more Lil Twister quilts. At the moment I only own the small Lil Twister Ruler but there is a Craft Show coming up in a couple of weeks and the large Twister Ruler is definitely on my shopping list!!
Thank you for all of the lovely comments on my last post. Once I have mailed my New Beginnings parcel off to ?????????????? (can't tell you, it's a secret!!) then I will post more photos of the final package goodies (I'm still on the hunt for a few more Aussie things!!)
If you own a Lil Twister Ruler and haven't played with it as yet...... have a go! it's so much fun!
I'm a little behind on my housekeeping duties re the Siggy Swap. I received a lovely Siggy from Linda recently, if you click on the International Siggy Swap in my Sidebar you will see Linda's siggy and my Siggy Album. I have a couple more blocks to photograph and upload too.
