Another Mug Rug

I'm trying out different quilt block patterns to see what I like and get an idea of how they go together so I'll know if I want to make a full quilt out of them. Then I make a Mug Rug out of the results.
This is the Tumbling Blocks pattern done in the traditional way. I piddled around with it, but it took me ALL DAY and only ended up a little more than 7 x 12 inches.

I really like the look of the finished quilts I've seen and still want to make one, but I'll find another way. Quilters cache has a paper pieced one, and Marci Baker has the strip pieced method that I'll have to give a try. I do like the black and white, I like the way (most) of my points met, but I'll have to find another method.

  1. Bummer to hear how much work this was, because it is gorgeous and one of my favorites you have ever done. I really love the black and whites and how they give an almost "optical illusion" feel with the shapes and boxes. Great job. :-)

  2. This one and it's complimentary mug found their way to Japan to Mikayla who seemed to like it so much.
