    Would love to see a picture. My sister makes potholders and gifts me with some several times a year, so I use those as coasters for both hot and cold drinks. The cotton absorbs the condensation of the cold drinks and the teflon fabric protects the surface from the hot cups. I use them as mini place mats for bowls, etc., too.

    I haven't found the directions yet on how to make them but here are lots of photos for all of you to enjoy

    would be like a big coaster or a small placemat, so use your creative ideas

    Mug rugs are what I am making for christmas gifts for all the ladies at work. They are very easy and lots of fun to make. they make up very quickly. I make mine 6' X 9' with 2 fat quarters I can get 4 using 1 for front and 1 for back. Also it is an easy way to practice different blocks

    I just found this tutorial but his one makes a smaller version, but you could enlarge it to make it bigger

    I have been reading that the mug rugs are 6 x 9, 5 x 10 etc.

    http://www.articlesfactory.com/artic...-mug-rugs.html



    another pattern in pdf (* 8 pages to print) and you could make it bigger but this give us the general idea and also a cute way to applique and make cute towels

    Mug rugs sounds like a great way to use up my scraps, try a new pattern etc. What would you put in it so moisture wouldn't get on your table or isn't that necessary?

    Looks like a thin potholder. I don't think a pattern is needed to make one.

    Could you use the silver ironing board stuff? How about the rubber-nubby stuff for footie pjs - I only thought of this because I'm rather clumsy and this would keep the rug from sliding off the table (don't ask). Ok, now another project added to the list!

    How do you get on live chat?
    If you look up at the top of your screen where is has the title "Quilting Board - The Quilter's Message Board"
    Look right under that and you will see all the different pages like "Home", "Quilting Newsletter", "Live Chat (#)", etc.
    Click on the "LIVE CHAT" and a new window will open for you.
    You will see a list on the right of who all is on there, etc.
    At that point the folks on live chat can help you if needed.
    Give it a try.....I LOVE it! Have made lots of great friends.
    Hope this helps!

    They're cute! Would be a great project for learning a new technique, or teaching a child to quilt.

    What about putting insul brite in them? Do you think that would help to keep the cup warm or just protect your table top?

    yes....either insulbrite or warm/natural batting will work ! But don't overquilt or it will be flatter than a 2 layer of fabric done together...ask me how i know :oops:

    I made bunches of these last year using this pattern...

    They worked up really quick, but don't really satisfy the need to quilt. I even got my son in on the project, which always makes it fun for me.

    Thanks for the pattern link--like this one the best--I think my skill level is just right for these.
