I guess I made a MUG RUG

New times, new names.........we would have just called it a coaster !
Maybe it would look more up-to-date if I had made it rectangular.

You girls have done a much better job of this than me !

I took one of the free-motion quilting practice pieces and colored it with crayons. 
Oh, well.  It will protect my little double-wedding ring quiltie........which they are now calling 'pickle dish', by the way !!!!!!!!!

(Thought I'd inject a little summertime blues into the winter's picture for all of you who are snowed in right now !  Stay warm and safe !)


  1. How cool is that! You colored it with crayons. Huh. Gotta protect the pickle-dish table topper!

  2. I've thought about a mug rug but haven't made one yet because I don't know how much I'd use it.
    I thought the double wedding ring configuration was called a pickle dish when it was made with triangles instead of the more rectangular shapes. Reminds me of some of my grandmother's cut glass dishes.
    I think it's so clever that you colored the mug rug with crayons. You were able to get lovely intense colors.

  3. Word Searching Mug Rug trying to figure out why coasters are all the rage in the quilting world. (during my absence knitting & crocheting)

    And wondered why they're bigger than a mug? ;) Saw a few pictures with a snack along side the cup... guess that works!

  4. Buy Tonya's book, Dolly. You know which one I mean. For one thing you get great instructions and information at your fingertips. For another, you get to support somebody who has inspired a great many quilters.

    btw, cute mug rug!

    (Millie is the cat)

  5. I like your coaster...at first look I thought you had felted it. A 'pickle dish'....how dare they! lol. (I enjoyed your snow pictures SO much...you captured the beauty of that snowfall so well. =)

  6. It is a cute mug rug, who says there are set sizes? It's like coasters or hot pads, just get them somewhere in the general area of usefulness.
    Your zigzag is looking great, too, I cannot believe you are quilting so rapidly by hand, Dolly!


Thanks for stopping by !
