Mug rug........ Mug MAT

Have you figured out yet that quilters are the nicest people. Recently I was visiting A Legacy of Stitches, and I left a comment on a very cute mug rug she had made. Sandi quickly sent me an email asking if I would like to have the scraps from the coffee fabric she had used. I told her YES, as my daughter loves coffee, and it would be fun for her to use one with the coffee theme.

So a few days later, this comes in the mail

What a nice bundle of fabrics. Way more then I thought her "few scraps" would be.

So this weekend I just started working with the fabric, and not only did I make a nice mug rug,

(sorry about the pins, I am still working on the binding)
BUT.......... I had enough fabric to make a Mug Mat!

Perfect for when we have a little more then just a cup of coffee going on :-)

Thanks Sandi!

Oh yes... "Perfect for when we have a little more then just a cup of coffee going on!" That phrase made me smile! I LOVE that idea!

Quilters ARE the nicest people!
Those are both cute as a button. But I always have a little more than a cup of coffee going on. ;)

Cute! I love using every last bit of fabrics that 'go together' to make up more quilty things.

So glad you could make a rug for your daughter and a mat for you. It's fun to share and see what others do with our scraps. :-)
