Weekend projects...

... that took the whole week to finish!
After finishing the blocks for the New York Beauty Quilt-Along last week, I felt sooo for making something else. While I was looking for some fabrics, my hands fell on a plastic bag with leftovers from these projects, so why not create something out of it? I find it very difficult to throw fabric, especially these cute chickens, so here is what I came up with.
 
Teapot cozy...
 
 
... with a matching mug rug...

Matching mug rugs
 
 
Matching placemats
 
 
More mug rugs
 
 
... and the last one...
 
 
Lots of fun making these projects and now there is not a single chicken left! :)
 
As I mentioned above, I have finished all the NYB blocks and I have sewn them together. I will do a blog post about it in a few days.  Now I have a 48 inch square quilt, but I want to make it bigger so that it fits at least a single bed. I have to check out sizes etc. So that is what I will be working on again this week - I think..... You know, it's always fun to start new projects, but I have to restrain myself - if possible! :)) If I get bored, which I know I will, there's always other UFO's to work on!
Have a wonderful week!

I'm making myself finish UFO's before starting something new. Isn't it hard?? Think how happy we'll be when our projects are all done! I love your chickens! They are just adorable!

those are cute. I made a tea pot cozy sometime back but I had to make some adjustments to it as it wasn't shaped quite right.

I always love seeing the projects you come up with. You manage to use every scrap of fabric. Love it!

Adorable!! I often take small project breaks when I'm working something large or labor intensive!! But I don't think I've come up with anything this cute in a long time!!
