Mug Mat Swap

I participated in the mug mat swap that Donna hosted this month.
My partner was Debbie from Mosaic Magpie who is a very good crazy quilter.  Not that
she is crazy, but that is a type of quilting for those of you who don't quilt.

The above is the mug mat that I made for her.   She had said that
she liked robin's egg blue, but that the room she would use it
in, is red, green, and beige.   So that's why I used the
colors I did.  I also used a print with a bird on it
because she likes birds.   Since she is a crazy quilter I did
some fancy stitches with my machine.  She also likes vintage
so I added a round vintage crocheted circle, and added
some buttons.

The mug mats are very easy and satisfying to make, and thanks to Donna you can find a
tutorial on her blog Brynwood Needleworks .  You won't be able to make
just one.
