After being introduce to "mug rugs" and signing up for the Mug Rug Swap, I decided to try one out while waiting for partners.  I attacked my scrap bin with inspiration from
http://www.pleasant-home.com/2010/11/sew-picture-perfect-mug-rugs.html

and came up with this:









the only batting that I had was super thick and I had to quilt it a lot more that I had planned on.... next time I will use a low loft instead

Thanks for looking....

I just love these!  I may have to make one.  I am not a quilter though, so I will have to find 2 fun fabrics and just quilt them instead of piecing them.  I think that would work.

Oh by the way, this 'rocks"

Ok... when I first looked it was a sunrise.... now it might be a flower..... no, I like it being a reversed sunrise.

I had no "real" idea of what it was supposed to be when I started.... so I suppose what it is....."is in the eye of the beholder"

Just popping in late to say that it's such a cool mug rug. I'm just learning patchwork and quilting and it looks like a great way to start off.

Thanks for the idea.

That's some snappy looking mug rug!!  If you want them to give off a nice scent over a hot cuppa, just add some drops of essential oil/s to the batting before sewing.  I did some large size pads like this last fall and added cinnamon/vanilla essential drops to them.  They smell heavenly when you put a hot dish on them!
