I've seen these little quilts popping up everywhere, and I decided that my sister really needed one! (Nevermind the fact that since I chose the Bento Box pattern, I'd end up with two.) I used fabric in my stash: a red rose print, a yellow rose print, and a print with a bird on a branch with colored leaves. Mug rugs I've seen are usually rectangular, but mine are square because I couldn't cut up these blocks!
Here's the block finished:
(I'm so happy the corners all lined up!)
Here's pictures of the two mug mats finished. You can see a little of the quilting in the close ups.
I sent these to my sister. She finally got them yesterday and put them right to use! Here's an action shot:
In the upper right is a picture of me and Ann when I graduated from Basic Military Training. In the upper left is a cross-stitch piece that Ann did for this Valentine's Day. AND...on the mug rug is fresh scones that she baked herself!! And coffee. Of course.
