A quick little project for the recent Warm & Cozy Swap.  My partner LadybugsAndBumblebees likes bright colors, so I created a cheerful little mug rug to brighten the end of winter.  The fabrics were all from my stash, and I used the Quilt-As-You-Go method to make it faster.  I can't remember where I first learned to do it, but you can find a tutorial for a similar mug rug HERE. I'm really pleased with the bright and happy color scheme, and am tempted to make another one for myself.

So pretty!  I made a rainbow pet food dish mat at a few years ago.  This makes me want to make a miniature version of it for myself.
