I made my very first mug rug! Well, it's not mine anymore, I made it for my buddy, StickerChic, in the most recent IYP.




I'm not a very good quilter, as you can see  Tongue


The quilting thread matches the binding, though!


I really like piping and I happened to have some that went well so on it went. I think it adds something...besides a bit of fabric and cord  Wink

Mug rugs never interested me much before but I'm a fan now. This one turned out a bit big I guess (7"x11" or so, if I remember right) but I can see where they could come in handy: like, for setting down the mini muffins and bottle of cream soda I just finished!

I like this, I think the mix of the colours and the plain material make it more interesting.

I LOVED your quilting!  I am a huge fan of patchwork and wonky...

I also think the larger sizes do come in handy...enough to sit a small plate for a yummy treat...

I hope you join future mug rug swaps so others can be your partner...here that, StickerChic87? Grin

I don't think I've ever thought about a mug rug before, but that's pretty awesome! Nice job Smiley
