    I was so inspired by the mug rugs. Someone posted photos of her mugs and rugs matching and for the life of me I cannot find that post to credit her. I tried to do the design in embroidery, by digitizing the design in my software, and then embroidering it on the fabric before making the rug. This is my first mug AND my first time free motion quilting. I rolled the backing around to the front to give it a look of binding. Not too bad for a first effort. Will make nice gifts at Christmas for co-workers. I bought seven cups today at Good Will. This is number one. I do hope I will be able to stick with this project so that I can get all seven done. I am not known for my sticktoitiveness!!!
    Thank you for looking.

    Thank you, not my original idea, I believe the one I saw was appliqued.
