Some Christmas quilting



These are mug rugs that I made for Christmas for nieces and nephews.  They are essentially mini quilts.  I found the pattern on-line.  I had the perfect fabric in my stash.  It was a kit I bought a few years ago for a Christmas tablerunner.  I didn't make the tablerunner and the fabric was perfect for these little mug rugs.

I added the names with my embroidery machine and found the perfect mugs at the Dollar Tree.  Everyone loved their little mugs and matching rugs.  Perfect for that hot beverage and a little treat.

 

Here they are checking out their gifts.  This year I decided to make all the Christmas presents for the family.  I'll share more of my creations later this week.

That is one of the cutest mug rug patterns I have seen. What a good idea to match them up with a MUG. Your embroidery addition made them extra special. Makes me want to get back to my embroidery machine and SEW. It's pretty cold in my studio right now, so I will have to wait.
