More Mug Rugs


These are some more of the mug rugs I made for a friend's birthday. She is a quilter so I know she will enjoy them. I am hoping she will use them when she has some of her quilty friends over for tea or coffee.
It is a fun way to play with some scraps and color combinations on a small scale.



Isn't this bee fabric cool? The simple straight line quilting goes fast and is just enough to make it nice.



I am also sending her the pot holder to set the pot of tea or coffee on. I love the black and white polka dots! I think this feels kind of vintage like.


Aren't the cups cute?


The gardens are fading fast. I love this combination of roses, blue salvia and purple polka dot flowers.
Now I need to go make some rug mugs for myself. Enjoy this beautiful fall day!

  6. Ohh Fun mug rugs!! Your hexie pot holder is really cool. I'm a huge fan of black and white polka dots too!! I've been using some recently. Your flowers are so pretty, They really do look like summer in a vase. Do you really call the purple gomphrena , polka dot flowers? That is such a cute name for them!

  11. Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Turkey and China are among the countries where some of the finest rugs are made. Rugs from these countries are popular among locals, as well as United States, Canada and European countries. Persian hand knotted area rugs now decorate some of the richest homes in New York City and Toronto, as well as other cities in Canada and United States.
