I think I must be the last quilter out there to jump on the mug rug bandwagon -- kinda silly, since I've been setting my drinks on a folded piece of baby flannel for the past few months.
It was a quick project. I pulled some strips from my box of 1 1/2" neutrals and sewed them together for the background, then added a die cut leaf.
I'm not loving the binding, which was left over from my February Quilt Along Square. It was narrower than I usually use, because that's what the quilt square pattern called for. Next time I'll use 2 1/2" binding and see if I like the results better.
This post is linked to finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
