My first foray into the world of mug rugs (technically defined as bigger than a coaster and smaller than a placemat) has resulted in a cute little cookie and coffee mat. I used some left over Dresden blades and a wild tropical fish fabric for the back. I thought it might be done but it was looking rather plain so I added some embroidery. The little chicks are from Aneela Hoey's book "Little Stitches." So sweet! The mug rug is for a Christmas exchange at the Rochester Modern Quilt Guild meeting tonite.read more

What's a mug rug? It's a mini quilt, the idea thought up in 2010 and can be as small as a coaster but is mostly meant to hold a cup and some cookies! Flickr has some examples of mug rugs

Over on Ipernity there's a mug rug swap group I joined a few months ago. We recently had a Holiday Mug Rug Swap. It was rather an adventure this time! I made a mug rug for my swap partner, gathered together some nice little goodies, wrapped it all up and took it to the post office and sent it off to Florida on 13 November. The man at the post office counter said it would be here in 2-3 days.
I didn't really think much about that box until about 5 days passed and I hadn't heard ...
There was lots of moaning, groaning and mmmmmmmmm's.
I hope everyone had a great feast with family, friends, community or whoever you had the pleasure to spend time with.
This one is just in time to enjoy before the Christmas holidays and it's the last one
I'll made for 2013.
What a blast it's been.
I'll be back around the first of the year, hopefully, with more of Mug Rug Thursdays.
I hope everyone will have a wonderful holiday season filled with ...
I used Modern Meadow from Joel Dewberry,
including several shades of Herringbone prints.
Using a fabulous technique from the Quilty Fun book,
I used 8 different prints to quickly piece together
a patchwork swatch. I backed it with Pellon 987F fusible fleece,

I used a lighter background with the dark brown shape to make the shoe stand out.
All the fabrics are from my stash which ...

As most of you know I was involved in the Fall inspired Mug Rug Swap over at Quilting Gallery and I posted pictures a bit ago of the mug rugs I made for my partner Rebbecca , the turkey and the pie. Well, today I got the ones that she made for me !!
They are SO beautiful !
I love this one so much, it is nice and thick !
She dedicated this one to my son, and so he has decided that means that it is his !
Look at the wonderful hand stitching she did ! I am in awe !
I've mentioned a time or two that I joined the Fall Mug Rug swap over HERE and I am so glad I did! I've met a really fun quilter named Diane (same as me) as she and I were assigned to be swap partners. We have emailed a few times, and as of last week, we have also swapped our mug rugs. As you can see, she also sent me a couple of lovely goodies to go with the two beautiful mug rugs. She made an adorable tea bag travel pouch, which will come in very handy when ... read more

It's been kind of a strange week of progress. I did get 5 new mug rugs in various stages of completion.
I also made the binding for my grandmother's quilt, although, I'm not done quilting it.
I've spent a lot of time trying to reorganize my fabric stash.
Needless to say, I feel like I've worked a lot, but not much to show for it.
Here are this week's stats:
