Mug Rug Swap
I also received a civil war fat quarter and a picture of a possible future project (Sewing machine cover). It felt like Christmas when I opened it. A wonderful surprise!
Mug rugs are fun and easy to do and are a wonderful project to work on if you don't have a lot of time. I made a couple a few weeks ago and have discovered that the Civil War Diary Quilt squares are the perfect size to start a mug rug. All you have to do is add an additional 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of matching fabric to one side and you have the perfect mug rug! Layer with batting and backing, quilt, bind and viola!
