My first foray into the world of mug rugs (technically defined as bigger than a coaster and smaller than a placemat) has resulted in a cute little cookie and coffee mat. I used some left over Dresden blades and a wild tropical fish fabric for the back. I thought it might be done but it was looking rather plain so I added some embroidery. The little chicks are from Aneela Hoey's book "Little Stitches." So sweet! The mug rug is for a Christmas exchange at the Rochester Modern Quilt Guild meeting tonite.
