Maybe it’s the current cold weather and my need for a hot mug, but the past couple of days I have been in the mood to make mug rugs. I like to send one to someone who needs cheering up. If you are not familiar with them, they are small quilted mats - larger than a coaster but smaller than a placemat.
I pulled out one of my quilting practice sandwiches on which I tried out snowflake embroidery designs along with a variety of FM quilting designs. It was large enough to cut into 4 mug rugs of 8” by 10”.
Here are 2 of those finished mug rugs.
Today I pulled out a pattern named “Textured Tweety’s Snowflake”. I found it online free last year and you can still get it from the magazine website. It appeared in the “Quilters’ Newsletter Magazine” Dec/Jan 2004.
Stay warm and safe.
