Something Different - A Mug Rug

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well and finding somewhere to keep cool.
Today I have something different to share with you. I use to do a lot of sewing but never did any quilting, it's something I've wanted to do but when I looked at all the beautiful quilts I thought that if I started one it would be something put at the back of a cupboard not finished. Earlier in the year I found a book called Animal And Pet Mug Rugs by Amanda Weatherill, they are small quilts for putting mugs on, although I don't think I'd put a mug on it as I could see it getting stained very quickly.

I was very pleased with the result and will be making more, I've also found a book on making small art quilts, now all I have to do is find the time. The mug rug measures about 9.5" x 5", 24.5x13 cms.

Thank you for visiting my blog, you're all very welcome. xxx

  2. I have just spent a while reading the posts I have missed and all the fabulous projects.
    I love your beautiful mug rug, I wouldn't want to use it as it looks so special.

  4. This is a wowser! I am totally in awe of it Hazel! Much too beautiful to get stained by tea or coddee - you are right to not use it in the intended way!
    Happy weekend!

  5. Amazing I really,really, really love it Hazel. If you ever feel like taking on a commission please let me know as I would love a baby floor rug just like this, about 30"x30". Kathy xx

  7. Sewing, let alone quilting, feels me with dread! I've putting off several sewing jobs just because it's such a struggle to get it done well without unpicking several times! Your mini quilt looks good, more of a décor piece, I think it would look good on a wall as well as on a table. Keep cool!
