    I know they're not quilts, just lowly mug rugs... but they were fun to make and I won't have time for "real" quilts until summer.

    These were thrown together from some tiny scraps left over from a dress my friend made for her daughter. She's an art student at the local university, and tonight was the opening of her exhibit on Movie Monsters. I wish I had a photo of the dress, it was smashing. The fabric is from Robert Kaufman's "Pleasures and Pastimes" collection. Fun, huh?

    They are super!! You have a real eye for design and balance, and that's not easy to display in such a small project, but you did it wonderfully.

    who says mug rugs are "lowly"?

    they're useful.
    they're cute.
    they're different to tacky plastic coasters.
    they're different to the fancy shmancy - but fragile or heavy - coasters.

    they're giftable.
    they're washable.
    they're creative and expressive.

    little works of art.

    lowly? i think not.

    good job. :thumbup:

    they look like quilts to me!!! just little ones :)
    a quilt by definition is 3 layers held together with stitching--that's it---there are no rules that say it's not a quilt if it isn't a certain size- your mug-rugs are wonderful little quilts! don't put your work down- they are wonderful.
    and lots of quilters never make a big quilt--they like little projects
