My First Mug Rug and a 2nd Finish for 2011!

I hadn't signed on to the mug rug craze that seems to be everywhere you look, but a group of ladies that I meet with decided to demonstrate machine applique, by having us make a mug rug.     Anyone that knows me knows I don't do small quilts.   My quilts run to queen or king size, but I have to admit, I am proud of the result.   I like the colors and finishing something, even such a small project, gives a nice sense of accomplishment.   


I see more mug rugs in my future.    They kind of go with my caffine addiction anyway.

Janice, Your mug rug is adorable! And, you can use it as a "landing pad" by your sewing machine. That's what I do with mine most of the time. I also like to take one to work to use as a mug rug on my desk! Glad you had fun! Julie
