Rug Mug

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!
