Quilters are always talking about whether or not it's worth saving scraps and what size scraps are too small to save. After cutting the pieces for my latest Bake Shop quilt, I was left with the middles of the Jelly Roll strips. (Not ends, because I fold them in half before cutting them.)
I sewed them along the 2 1/2" edge, then sewed three rows together to make the front of my mug rug. Then I used the extra row I'd made for the back, framed with pieces I cut from an unused Jelly Roll strip.
The rest of the Jelly Roll strip went for the binding. I thin that might be my least favorite part of the piece. I don't like the way it looks where it folds around the back. I think I need to look at some different methods for finishing mug rugs.
