Mug Rugs

I joined another swap the last one for a bit. I need to finish up some of my projects! Anyways it was all about mug rugs. I don’t actually own one so I was excited about the idea of owning one. I made two different mug rugs since I was not too sure which one my partner would want. I have narrowed it down now to which one I will send. I had fun making these.

I really loved putting this one together and how the quilting turned out. It was super nice working one something small and trying something new! I was also grateful for the lovely quilting community. I had put a shout out on IG that I needed some reproduction prints and a lovely local lady named Paula mailed me some! 

This one I drew out my own template for paper piecing the rays. I enjoyed creating it as I went.

linking to finish it up friday at crazy mom quilts

I love the second one! Great idea and execution. And the flower prints with the crossweave!

I love the black crosshatch fabric, a great alternative to a solid.

Oh, I've always had a soft spot for 30's repro fabrics. You made them so incredibly modern with the crosshatch background fabric. Smart combo!
