    I'm planning on it. :) Didn't start any yet, but I figure they go quickly, and if I find the right coffee mugs for them, I'll know the colors to use.

    If I could find a good pattern I might. Any links to one would be appreciated. They would be great for my mom and sister.

    I've got probably a dozen mugs set aside with fabrics but not yet started.

    Use any quilt block you like, add filling (a lot of us use InsulBrite), a backing and binding.

    Here is a tutorial you might like. I bought the ruler and plan on making some of these soon.

    I love swapping mug rugs with quilters, but I have found that non-quilters don't really "get" them. Most people look at me quizzically for using one, so I'm not sure how well recieved they would be by "outsiders".

    I guess I was a little skeptical about them when I first heard of them too, but they are just so fun to make I accepted the idea!

    Mug rugs are so much fun to make. My sister eats lunch at her desk every day. I made this mug rug big enough to hold her sandwich and a drink. It is about 8"x10". She said everyone at her work wants one too. Google mug rug images and you will see a lot of them.
