my first mug rug

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.

Now I'm the last one! LOL. I really like the leaf you added. Mug Rugs are on my list, but they keep being put on the back burner.

Sweet! And a quick finish, too! My motto is to use what you have.

I was kind of slow jumping on that bandwagon, too. But, they are fun aren't they?

Nice job!
