Table runner and mug rugs

After finishing the Polar bear quilt, Postage Stamp quilt and other UFO's, it feels good working on something new and smaller projects. I still have a couple of UFO's to finish, but they will have to wait! :) 
I love making tablecloths and I have just finished a table runner in berry pink fabric displaying delicious pieces of cakes.

From leftover fabric I made two mug rugs...
...and what was still left I cut into 2 and 2.5inch charms

I love making mug rugs as well... and here are some summer-ly mug rugs.
The fabrics I have used are swatches from a shop sale (remember the box I got from my friend last year?)



If you want to know what I'm doing when I'm not quilting, take a look here.

Nice projects! Looks like you've been busy. I keep looking at my stuff, but haven't done anything with it for awhile. Nice to see your stuff! It gives me a push to get my machine out and start working.

Lovely fabrics and colours used. Now having cake with tea will be more fun! I agree that after a lot of big quilts, it is satisfying just making small and quick projects.
