    They really are colorful. I hope to make some as a little gift to the gals who help us with our pillowcase sew ins. 2 gals who live quite a distance from us joined our guild just to be able to make pillowcases for kids in hospitals. Hope my mats come out as nice are yours did.

    I love the mug mat I received at a retreat, I keep it next to my computer so I can enjoy my morning coffee while checking out this message board. May in Jersey

    I love these. How much batting do you put in so the furniture is protected?

    Cute mug rugs. Approximately what size are they? Crafty Bear you are the Queen of links - it seems no matter what someone is looking for you find a link for them.

    There is no pattern. I cut background fabric 8 1/2 x 10 1/2, backing the same and batting the same. I used scraps of warm and natural. I pulled scraps from my 2 inch bin, put fusable on them and fused in place. then I straight stitched around all the pieces. starting off the fabric, thru the block, and off another side. I turned in the middle and did it all which aways. really easy. you could blanket stitch each piece, but takes longer. for the binding I went to my 2 1/2 inch bin and found a color that matched. My favorites are with the black background. really makes the colors stand out. hope this helps.
