mug rug for Christmas

I am sure you have noticed all the cute mug rugs
popping everywhere....
Well after seeing Mary's rug mugs at Pin. Sew. Press.,
I knew I had to make some too!
They would make a perfect Christmas present....

I totally copied her designs,
I just used Christmas and snow flakes fabric.
The white fabric has white snow flakes, hard to see on the pictures.

It had been such a long time since I quilted,
it was fun, and being so small,
it is almost a one-day project!

The second one is also a copy of Mary's design.
I just like the simplicity.
I mostly do traditional quilting with a lot of complicated pieces,
and sometimes it feels overworked, not inspiring.

I have been looking into modern quilting,
trying to participate but I have found it challenging.
After making these mug rugs,
I feel like I can try to make my own design...
I bet it will take me much longer to make the next one!

Happy quilting!

    1. I did it just like for a quilt, maybe single layer instead of double as it is a small project.

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
