Mug Rugs and May Giveaway

After following the Mug Rug Madness a few weeks ago, I decided to try to make a few mug rugs. They seemed so quick and easy! I ended up making them for my book club friends. We met last night and I gave them all their little presents!

It was such fun! I tried to coordinate each mug rug to the person. This one was for Augusta; she has a lot of green and leaf motifs in her house.

This was for Charmion; it just fits!

And this was Jackie's- she seemed to really like it!

And Louise has a lot of blue dishes and things in her home.

Last, but not least, this was Diane's. Diane goes to Nantucket every summer, so I thought something that reminder her of the water would be perfect.

As they say in Peter Pan, That was a great adventure!

Now off to another project... I am working on finishing a pattern. I designed it ages ago, and had it half done and now the push is on to finish as I am teaching it as a class in a few weeks! So I am testing the "quilt" size instructions. this is the banner in the pattern.

I am taking the top block of the banner and creating a quilt. I decided to try to use some of my "stash" instead of buying all new. So I found a green and pink that I got many years ago when a local quilt was closing. I went to one my favorite local shops and got a blue to go with it. So we will see how it works! It's kind of fun to try it in colors that are so different from the original banner.

Happy quilting!
