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.
