    Mug Rugs from scraps

    Last Nov. we lost a member of our Church Quilting Guild. Her family graciously donated her fabric to the Guild. I took some of the scraps, added some embroidery, and made mug rugs for each of members, so they would have something from Linda to remember her.
    This is my first time posting, hoping the picture makes it.

    If life gives you scraps, make an angel quilt out of it!

    These are delightful and I personally find making them to be addicting. I know that the members of the guild will be touched that you were so generous with your time and efforts.

    They are very pretty, and a special act of love to pass on.
