Mug Rugs

I finally got to attend my first Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild meeting on Saturday, and I had so much fun! How awesome is it to be surrounded by people who not only understand your quilty obsession, but share it? Fantastic!

Anyways, we had a mug rug swap while there, and here is my contribution





I had some questions as to how I pieced my front, and I had to admit, I didn’t really know! I set out my scraps sort of how I wanted them to go together and started sewing bits together! It was fun, though I did end up with one Y seam; poor planning! The solid is Kona Coal, and the rest of the fabrics were all scraps, hurray!

And here is the amazing mug rug that I received!


It is already pinned to my wall above my machine :) But ew bad lighting in my room, sorry!

Here’s all of the lovely mug rugs hanging out together.





By the way, the cute one with the little 1” squares on the front was the one my mom made :)

I can’t wait until the next meeting, so fun!
