    I know you must think I live in a cave, but until two days ago, I didn't know what a Mug Rug was....Then I discovered a short term fix to my addiction...Yesterday's fun can be seen below. Today I am going to paint a shoe mug rug...can't wait!!

    I'm trying not to get hooked on those, but your samples make it hard to resist. They are wonderful...the best I've seen yet!

    OMG!! they are so much fun!! The longest part is stitching the back of the binding!! I am practicing hard on those, since someday soon I want to do a wholecloth quilt.

    Mug Rugs can be anywhere from 5x7 to 7 or 8 x 13 from what I've seen. I did a search on this board for tutorials after I realized what they were yesterday. This one is called Ziggety Mug Rug and the original pattern is from a magazine, I think. Must go get started on the shoe mug rug!! See ya in a little while!

    Nicely Done, MmeQuiltingAddict :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I like your design there, with your bias joins. I haven't really been following patterns ... just making things happen with fabric. Whatever whim comes! I did my first crumb blocks .... Mug Rug size! And yes, I know, I need to get some pics posted!! :)

    You do seem to be really into the Mug Rugs and yours are beautiful. I failed to take pics of them, but I recently made a good quilting friend 12 mug rugs for her birthday. One for each month of the year; i.e. Valentines, 4th of July, her birthday month. It was fun trying to come up with different themes for each month.

    ok all of you mug rug addicts, I would like directions, advice etc, on how to make them, I have extra scraps and thought that would be a great way of using those scraps. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

    oh and Jeannie, yours look so good!
    be great for upcoming Christmas gifts and such....
