12 Mug Rugs Finished

Finished - 12 mug rugs complete and ready to be delivered. These are to be used as small hostess gifts on her trip to visit family in California next week.

Just what she ordered simple and plain with no frills. These were fun to make and I got lots of practice at machine quilting.

I made these using the '15 minutes of play' method that is popular now in blogland. I just picked up a piece and attached it without any real plan or design in mind. I thought it worked well for me in making these mug rugs. It was a different feeling than having something all designed out and cut to order. I could do this more often. (Only once did D#1 say "Mom, that just doesn't work at all - in fact it's just *****!)
I'm off to look at the 'boy toy' that Big T and the Dude just bought. The Dude is grinning from ear to ear so it must be just great.
Hugs - Marie


  1. That new toy of theirs certainly can't be as exciting as a new sewing machine or fabric line!

    Love the mug mats. I really do like the 15 minutes play things. Everyone is so creative!


  2. Hey. Marie, where in California.
    We have kids in Californa.


  3. Love the bright happy colors. What a great idea for a hostess gift!
