The pursuit of excellence…

chevron mug rug resizedIt’s always worthwhile, wouldn’t you agree? Practice makes perfect — we’ve heard it and said it all our lives. Because it’s true!  If you want to be expert at something, if you want your skill to show, if you want to be (reasonably!) proud of your work, then it’s worthwhile to pursue excellence.  My good friend, Trudy, says that working with small blocks is a good way to perfect piecing skills.  To that end — here’s a chevron “mug rug” made from 1 3/4″ half square triangles — which were the “excess” trimmed from “real” quilt blocks!  I plan to quilt it and bind it next week.
