This is a mug rug I made for my friend and neighbor, Flo. I know she loves her coffee and this will be a perfect little gift for her. In case you don’t know what a mug rug is, just think of it as a fancy quilted coaster.
For this one I started with a pre printed quilt label which can be purchased as a panel from a quilt store. Then I pulled some matching fabrics from my ever growing fabric stash to complete the little quilt top. I added a couple applique stars, too, because they kind of match the star flower on the quilt label. I used some variegated thread and did some fun quilting in each of the sections of the mug rug. I had great fun making this and I hope Flo smiles every time she uses it.
