mug rug swap

i’m a member of the madison modern quilt guild and in december, i participated in a mug rug swap.  what’s a mug rug?  sort of a large-ish coaster.  big enough for “a cup and a cookie.”  a perfect quick project for a bit of immediate gratification.  here’s the rug i made for my swap partner:

IMGP6270-001based on rossie’s quilt “the long conversation” (which i loooooove!)IMGP6271-001 this was my first time to try out concentric curve quilting and I like how it seems like the soundwaves of the conversation.IMGP6272-002i backed it with heather ross’ clothespin people because the colors were a perfect match.  the binding is some really cute teeny binding my mom made for me.IMGP6274-001 And this is the lovely mug rug i got from my swap partner:IMGP6614i especially love this asterisk fabric on the back and the two little blue strips in the binding.  thanks for a great swap, nicky! IMGP6613what a great project!  it was exciting to actually get some creative just-for-fun sewing done.  hooray!
