Arty Mug Rugs

Even art quilters turn out mug rugs for swaps. We had a good time trading our rugs at a recent meeting of a group I belong to. The deal was, you got to choose a rug for each rug you brought. In the interests of fairness the selection was done in rounds.

I took five and ended up with seven, thanks to over production by some members.

Here’s one I’d like to have guard my morning cup of coffee.
