i’m a member of the madison modern quilt guild and in december, i participated in a mug rug swap.Â what’s a mug rug?Â sort of a large-ish coaster.Â big enough for “a cup and a cookie.”Â a perfect quick project for a bit of immediate gratification.Â here’s the rug i made for my swap partner:
based on rossie’s quilt “the long conversation” (which i loooooove!) this was my first time to try out concentric curve quilting and I like how it seems like the soundwaves of the conversation.i backed it with heather ross’ clothespin people because the colors were a perfect match.Â the binding is some really cute teeny binding my mom made for me. And this is the lovely mug rug i got from my swap partner:i especially love this asterisk fabric on the back and the two little blue strips in the binding.Â thanks for a great swap, nicky! what a great project!Â it was exciting to actually get some creative just-for-fun sewing done.Â hooray!
