Mug Rugs

The mug rugs are running rampant. LOL. Such cute little bits of fabric, pieced together and quilted so quickly. There are swaps and contests galore out in blog land.

Here is one I did for a contest over at Madame Samms'.

They are so easy to make. And PERFECT for practicing your newfound machine quilting skills (which I obviously need LOTS more work on. LOL)

You can make your own design, with scraps from your scrap basket...I just put some of these together till I had a pleasing design.

Sew together. And trim.

You can also use a block from any pattern out there. Here are a few darling ones. The first one comes from Happy Zombie, I love it!

Here's one from Jennifer, I love the pocket!

Back to mine...

If it's not big enough, no problem, just add a few pieces till it's the right size for you.

Then layer it, quilt it and bind it. Ta-da! super easy.

We are having a mug rug swap at the Q&N! Click here to join us. It's a secret one (we LOVE secret's on the forum!), which means we wont know who is making us a mug rug, till it arrives on the doorstep. Lots of fun.

Hope to see you there!

Till next time....
