So I have seen on a few blogs especially here, these adorable mini quilts used as rugs for mugs. Such a funny little idea but it has stuck with me for a week or so since I first discovered them. What a great way to teach myself to be creative and to hone my skills as a quilter. Didn't get all crazy and actually try some free motion quilting or anything - that is for another day where I have much more time. For a gal with very limited time, straight line quilting is the way to go.
Perhaps I shall take the plunge soon. But for now here is my debut Mug Rug - the Christmas edition. Fabric from the 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain. I belong to the Christmas Block of the Month Club at the FQS and one huge benefit from receiving my block kit every month is that there is a lot of extra fabric. I have even seen where people make two blocks out of the fabric they receive. What a deal.
So thank you Jennifer from That Girl...That Quilt for a great inspiration!
