I recently participated in a mug rug swap. What's a mug rug you ask? Well, it's a big coaster for your coffee mug - basically a mini quilt that you stitch up - be as creative as you want and it's all the rage lately. Just google Mug Rugs and see what you get or go to flickr and check out some there. I was assigned a swap partner through The Quilting Gallery Mug Rug Swap. Below are the two mug rugs I created for my swap partner. One has machine embroidery and applique, the other just a simple 4-patch design.
Hi - i'm Rick and welcome to my blog. I have been sewing since early childhood when I would sit and watch my mother sew clothes and pillows and all sort of projects at home. I recently have become interested in machine embroidery and have begun quilting as well. I plan to blog about my project and the progress of the projects here.
