So...I made a rag quilt a little over a year ago and I love it. It's one little (very heavy!) way I could ensure that I wouldn't have to part with my old snuggly pjs and my family's old jeans Tongue

I decided I want to do more quilting, but of the applique/artsy variety. I should really start small...aka...mug rug. But what does one put in it? Batting seems a waste because it's not going to be keeping a body warm, plus I'm anticipating spills. So, a doubled up old towel? I know essentially it's really up to me, but has anybody found something to work better in this case?

I just use batting. I use really thin, low loft batting in my quilts and always have bits and pieces left over. A piece of flannel or fleece works fine too!

Sweet deal! I also want to make potholders too. So of course I ventured over to fabric.com and saw they have a bunch of cotton fabric on sale for $3.95...

I now have enough to make several mug rugs/potholders and start on a quilt for a friend for christmas  Roll Eyes
