Serendipity

My Flickr friend, Karen, posted a picture of some key-chain supplies and I asked if she'd make me one.  She quickly agreed and I told her I'd make her something in return.  I knew I wanted to use Wonderland because Karen was first person I didn't know to buy one of my quilts on Etsy (it happened to be made with Wonderland)!  She holds a special place in my crafting heart!  I decided a mug rug to match her quilt would be perfect!
Karen sweetly agreed to make me a new key chain so I made her this mug rug!
This is truly of case of serendipity!   I had the tiniest scraps left from my Wonderland double hourglass quilt and they were the perfect amount!  The squares finish at 1.5" and the whole thing measures 7" square.  Even the binding and backing were leftovers from the Wonderland quilt!  I've been wanting to try the granny square craze, but I don't have time to start a whole new quilt right now.  This was fast and satisfied my craving!  Now if only this method would work for me with food!

It's gorgeous Kelly. This is one of the few I have seen done that makes me understand how you could make just one. Unfortunately all of mine look like they should belong with 20 other blocks. So I have my work cut out for me.
