Mug Rug!

I have seen Mug Rugs on various quilting blogs and thought they were rather cute. Then my friend, Frances, started making some. She has been having a great time and they really are cute!

This morning, I decided in the midst of things I need to do like finish paying bills... reconcile the bank statement... all those kind of things... I wanted to do something just for fun... so I decided to make a mug rug!  I found some leftover block pieces from a quilt I made a number of years ago for my brother and his wife.  I grabbed a few of those and some black scraps and leftover batting and off I went.

It was a quick and easy project... this first  mug rug is super basic!  Provided me with a bit of instant gratification. LOL!

I think it turned out pretty nice:

There are issues with the binding.. but then I always have issues with binding!  I am thinking mug rugs will provide some much needed practice.

Off to do things I need to do now. But no doubt there will be more mug rugs in my future.
