Quack Quack – Mug Rug #12 | Quilts By Jen

Hey Everyone, welcome back to Mug Rug Monday. Last week I was a little over zealous on my counting and thought I was at mug rug 12 but in reality I was only at number 11. Today is #12. Only 40 to go. I had a brilliant idea this morning and thought why not make a mug rug to go with my Animal Party quilt. Great fun for little kids and big ones too. Bright cheery colours with an appliquéd animal will make snack time lots of fun. I pulled a few bright fabrics from my cupboard along with a fabric for the sashing, cut them up and made a 7 x 12 inch mug rug. The black fabric with a colourful geometric print is what makes the quilt – it adds lots of contrast between the 4 patch blocks and appliqué blocks. I’ve tried other fabrics but always come back to the black.
