Do you need last minute, fun-to-make, inexpensive quilted gifts? After reading my Mug Rug post on November 25, Marie decided to make some for the ladies in her neighborhood who gather for dinner each month.
She found a cute paper-pieced tree pattern, “Tannenbaum Mug Rug,” on Bonnie Hunter’s website (quiltville.blogspot.com) under the Free Patterns! tab. Marie’s explanation: I used all my scrap greens and white/off-whites for the trees and background, and I used bits and pieces of Christmas fabrics for the borders, backs and bindings. I used odd scraps of batting, some of which were pieced. Each mug mat took about two hours to make. I think they turned out nicely and my guests will be surprised to take one home with them.
Thanks for sharing a picture and the source for a great idea with us, Marie. (Bonnie would be proud of you!)
