Mug Rug Swap

I have completed two mug rugs for the swap I am participating in!

The Mug Rug Swap is hosted by Michele at Quilting Gallery. This is my first 'swap' and I chose to do these Mug Rugs because they are adorable, and because I have never done applique in this manner - with the hand embroidery work. I want to expand my quilting to include some art quilts, and thought this would be a great place to start.

These cute little patterns are from The Patchsmith.

I tackled the owl's first...

It was Valentine's Day when I pieced the top for the next one: The Birdie Quilt:
I was a bit frustrated with the Blanket Stitch by then, and chose to piece the birdhouse. I used my machine to blanket stitch the bird and snow.
I just need to add a label and pop these little treasures in the mail to my secret recipient. Too fun!!


  1. These are so cute. Im sure who ever receives them will be thrilled.

  2. I love both of your mug rugs. I particularly like the quilting on the bird and birdhouse. The coaster with the Easter bird is good too. Nice work.
