Puffin gifts

We exchange handmade gifts with a couple of our quilter friends.   This year, I made 2 things that would remind them of our wonderful quilting tour to Iceland that we all went on this year.

Iceland hotpad

One was a hotpad with a map of Iceland and an appliquéd Puffin.

The Puffin was fussy cut from a tea towel that I purchased in Iceland.   I do love puffins and was very excited when we saw them on the cliffs in Iceland.

Mug rug

 

The other is a paper pieced mug rug.   I found the puffin pattern online and purchased & downloaded it.

Making the mug rug rectangle made a good fit for a mug without having to cover-up the puffin.

Happy Stitchin,

Mary
