A Quilter's Mug Rug

Hi! I'm Sarah, and I'm a quilter in Chandler, AZ! After FINALLY getting my machine back from the shop, I decided to do some quilting that let me do a little free motion work, since I haven't been able to for months! Since time was short, I went with a mug rug, and used some of my favorite quilting tools as inspiration. I appliqued the rotary blade, thimble, spool of thread, and tomato in a purposefully rough and rustic way. The upper half of the mug rug is quilted in a yellow grid, just like my favorite ruler! (In hindsight, I wish I'd used a brighter yellow thread to make it stand out, but cest la vie...). The mug rug comes in at 5" by 10", and will likely go into my Etsy shop, or find a home in my sewing room!
