Two Tip Tuesday – Mug Rug

Last week I finished my Mini Teal Swap mug rug!  It went to a very active quilter in Kansas.  I was so excited to get the mini she made for me.  Thank you Katie!

The mug rug I made for her is below.  It was a swap and challenge all in one.  We had to use the fabric I used for the mug/ cup and saucer.  TEAL!  The ovarian cancer ribbon color.

I had fun hand sewing the foundation houses and making the mini!  The swap raised over $4,000 for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund!!  Quilter’s are wonderful!

#1 – a great way to raise monies for support…make a QUILT!



I love pieced backs.  The mini is only 10″ square but I still pieced it.

By piecing, I could highlight the fabric used for this year’s swap.








…and look, a label!
