Good Morning!

Mug rugs are hot. I like them because they are mini quilts. I can sew up a new idea, and not have to wait a year to finish it (I'm a slow quilt maker!). Instant gratification. Not to mention enjoy a cup of coffee sitting on a little piece of quilted art. This one developed from the urge to dye some light weight canvas, blue, cloud-like. I cut the piece of dyed fabric in 2" strips and then sewed together a log cabin block. It needed something...a black crow with just a little detail stitched in.

Hi and happy new year. I'm not sure my comment worked a few minutes ago so am trying again.

I love the polka dot border on this - it makes it extra happy. I've only made 3 mug rugs - two as gifts and one for myself at work. Maybe I should make a couple more to get my creativity going again!

Thanks for the inpirations (always).

Love the crow and binding together! I need to try one of these; looks like a good opportunity to practice FM quilting!

sweet! my hesitation with mug rug is that i am sloppy and the thought of spilling coffee/tea on it gives me anxiety.
