Mug Rug # 1 picture


I finally got done with this mug rug at 2am. I was really pushing the limit there since they have to be mailed out today. The second mug rug is also done, and I will do a separate post for that one. This one took more time than the 2nd one, because I hand quilted it, hand pieced it, and hand appliqued it. I cannot help the insanity. I just figured that I would make something that I would love to have myself. The person who I made this for is somewhat of an enigma wrapped in a riddle. I have a name and address. She does not have a blog or a flikr account. Her preferences were ''anything''. Whoever you are...THANK YOU! I was able to make something out of pure creativity, while still staying within a guideline of ''what would the average quilter just love''. I couldn't really make a mug rug with a coffee theme, because I didn't know if she liked or hated coffee (are there really coffee haters out there?)...so what do you think of the first one? I hope she loves it!

I love it! I confess that I am a coffee hater. I drink a cup of tea with local honey every morning.
