    Yes a mug rug is a place to put your mug on your desk or workspace. The back can be seen in the original thread here:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...163582-11.html i did the back on this one a bit differently but it is basically the same.

    I followed the explaination of how to make this just fine. I have never hear the 9 degree term before. i am guessing that I would just need a pattern. But I do love this. It turned out gorgeous. I think it would be a great way to practice a new quilting pattern.

    Yes a 9 degree ruler is in the stores, but you can use any wedge pattern. It will make a difference on how many pieces are in the fan. In a 9 degree full circle there are (I believe) 20 wedges. I might be wrong on that though. i grabbed what I had handy.

    Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

    Love the tutorial, what does 9 degree mean for the fan?

    This is beautiful! What a great mini project. So many possitive aspects beyond its beauty. You get to use up smaller fabric scraps, its quick, you get to practice (for me) free motion quilting, you have something to give friends that like your work with out having to make a larger piece. Thanks for sharing.

    Outstanding tutorial, mug rugs are mini quilts which can give us the opportunity to try new techniques and hone our skills. I love them and have been a number of swaps for mug rugs. Check out The Patchsmith on Craftsy for some of the cutest mug rugs available at an amazingly low cost.
