Mug Mat aka Mug Rug
I found this really great coffee mug that I just loved and wanted to make a mug mat for it. A border print and some fat quarters in complimentary colors found their way into the card tricks block pattern. I'd never made that pattern before so it was a good way to try a new block.
It finished of about 8 1/2" by 12" so there will be plenty of room for a snack and what I end up using my mug mat for - - a place to park the cell phone.
This set is going out as a gift. I'm really happy with the way it all turned out.

And another one using the same fabrics in the twister pattern that I got done just under the wire of 2010. The foundation blocks were cut at 3 inches and the template was just a shade over 2 inches. The Mug Rug turned out finishing at 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches for the entire piece. The center 'twister' area ended up just under 7" X 7" so it shrunk up 5 full inches just in the pinwheel area!!
