Mug rugs are addictive. So little and cute. And then there’s the peer pressure! Even though I just did a mug rug swap, there’s still so many cute little ones popping up all over the quilt blog world. I had so much fun using the AccuQuilt to make these up.
The Dresden Plate die is so versatile. First, there’s an actual Dresden Plate (well, part of one). I love how the quilting adds so much texture to the linen background. Up close and personal, it reminds me of water marks on sand.
The next two use the Circles die. First, a big circle (5"). I had started this one weeks ago thinking it might work for my mug rug swap partner. She didn’t comment on the beginnings, so I set it aside. Yesterday, I decided it was time to finish it up. I love those Heather Bailey fabrics.
The Cherish Nature mug rug used the 2" circle.
And finally, my little Dalmatian mug rug. This was clearly the easiest, but it just might be my favorite. I’m such a dog person, which means seriously in love with puppies, and well, it’s hard to beat a Dalmatian puppy for sheer loveable cuteness!
I’ve got a bunch more ideas in my sketchbook, but before I can get to those, there’s a Spring themed AccuQuilt project coming up that takes priority.
And don’t even ask about those Civil War sampler blocks I absolutely must catch up on!
