Several months ago, two of my friends on Ravelry and I discussed the possibility of having a mug rug swap. We never got around to it. Time went by and mug rugs gained in popularity so another friend decided to host a swap. This time I was ready to participate. After all, how much time would it actually take to make a tiny quilt?
Mug Rug??? What's a mug rug? It's an over-sized quilted coaster big enough to hold a cup or glass of your favorite beverage and a snack. The actual size (and shape varies.) The majority are about 7" x 8", but some are as big as 8" x 10".
You may be wondering why you couldn't just make your own. Well, you CAN, but it wouldn't be nearly as much fun! The mug rug that I made for ____________ went out in the mail this week. I'm anxious to find out if my interpretation of her theme was anything like what she was hoping to get. (She asked for tropical and I went beach-y.)
I'll add a photo when the mug rug has arrived at its new home.
Ready? Set. Sew!
