Christmas Project #3 - Check

I finally made some Mug Rugs!!  I have been wanting to make these for some time, but I was planning on using the scraps from my advent calendar, so I had to finish that first to get the scraps :)  I made these pretty simple.  My scraps were pretty limited, and when I started playing around with different design ideas I just kept coming back to something and straight-forward.  They went together pretty fast and they will make wonderful little gifts for a few special ladies around here :)

What a cute little Trio :)


I always love a scrappy binding :)

So I know the snowmen mugs don't really match the mug rug, but I just couldn't pass up those adorable mugs.

So as you can see, I am pretty hooked on quilting swirls.
Pin It!

  6. Mug Rugs are on my agenda for tonight Melissa - hubby is out of town so I can sew as late as I like. :) I love swirls too - they're getting better as I practice, but I'm better at a meandering stipple. :) blessings, marlene

  10. I love your mug rugs and advent calendar. I see you are in South Bend. I was just at a retreat in Shipshewana before Thanksgiving - didn't make it to Erica's this trip, but you have some great fabric shopping up there.
