Of that mug for your rug
Originally, I'd planned on a pattern like this for one of the mug rugs. I thought the second might be done using the same fabrics (10 of them) but in a less structured pattern.
And then I made the first one and didn't like it one bit. The fabrics were great, but I used about 1/2 patterned fabrics, which would have been fine on a larger scale but not on the small scale of a mug rug (finished size 10" by 6") ... at least not the one I put together.
Then I saw the birdhouse I keep on one of my nightstands. That was that. These were born.
These are for the Quilting Gallery mug rug swap. I truly hope my partner enjoys them as much as I do.
(Yes, this one is squared/rectangled(?) ... I haven't found the grid feature on my current camera yet).
