I decided to work on something quick and easy and there probably isn't anything faster than a mug rug made out of an orphan quilt block! This is one of the few applique blocks that I have ever attempted. I used a variety of hand dyed fabrics from my local quilt shop and added some stitching in variegated blue perle cotton. This quilt block measures 8" square. I don't know who came up with the mug rug idea, but it sure is a fun name for a little quilt : )
