Have you ever made a mini quilt? How about a mug rug?

Personally, I am dying to try this tutorial-- http://sew-fantastic.blogspot.com/2011/03/mug-rug-tutorial-scrappy-colorblock.html You can use this or another pattern, if you prefer.

Finished "rug" should be big enough to hold a mug and a stack of cookies (so @ 5x7"-ish or larger)

You have one month to complete the project. Senders choice on fabrics/colors but it certainly doesn't hurt to check out your partner's profile.

Depending on how popular this one is, I want to make it into a series with a theme for each one. This first one is just open to your own preferences.

I just did this swap and loved making mine. I would love to join yours! That would be awesome if you do a series, cause I own over 700 coffee mugs and need lots of rugs LOL! Thanks.....C[ ]

This is SO cute! I've never done any quilting before, but have been itching to give it a try, and this might be the perfect way to practice ... I'm in! :D

Can I knit the mat?

@mathaholic that sounds fun!

This swap is just for sewn/quilted mug rugs but that is a great idea for one later in the series! Do you mind if I use your idea in a future swap?

mathaholic 07/11/2011 #


Please do use the idea. Could you message me if you do make that swap? It would be fun to participate! Thanks!
