Anything goes, Quilt-'n-Sew #2 - Mug Rugs


I have been so busy these past few weeks with my "Express Your Love" quilt, that I desperately needed to do something else to take my mind off of her.  You can read all about it here.

So I made these cute little mug rugs.  Any excuse to FMQ I suppose.  



They are so quick and simple to make.  They would make really nice gifts, and since it does not take a long time to make, I can start planning my Christmas gifts now.  Too soon?  I think NOT.  Last year I had no hand made gifts, so this year I decided to take a completely different direction.  Something hand made is by far more special than store bought, I think..


Now for the linky party


It's Monday and a new week, so lets all share some of our projects, please link up any current project you've been busy with, anything at all....this link is open for a week and will run every Monday, so remember to come back next week, or follow my blog to get regular updates.

UPDATE 29/01/2013 - Feel free to add any other blog posts you write during the week, since this linky stays open for a full week, I think its a great idea to share and keep sharing...

All I ask is that you either add the 'Anything Goes' blog button to your sidebar or add a text link to your blog post, and comment on a few of the other links too, share the love and make this weekly linky party a fun way to connect.

Yes, FMQ is so addictive. Those mug rugs are cute .. I have some two projects to baste and am in avoidance mode. I always baste on the floor and without fail, do my back in. The physio is never happy with this.

Thanks Karin, http://marelize-ries.blogspot.com/2012/11/hand-basting-your-quilt.html here is a useful link I've posted some time ago to hand baste your quilt, its the only method I use now, I too used to do it on the floor, and after I had no energy to carry on, check it out..

Your mug rugs are so cute. I love the fmq, too. Great idea for a linkup. I'll add yours to my list of linkups :-)

I've decided I love Mug Rugs. And making some to just practice free motion so I get better at it is a great idea that I'm going to steal.

Definitely never too early to start hoarding handmade gifts for Christmas! I decided in October to make quite a few and it got a bit nuts at the end. Mug rugs are a good idea, and an excellent way for me to break myself in to FMQ - quite scared of it, but have bought the required foot for the machine now! Thanks for hosting the linky :)

Maralize, thank you for the invitation. I linked up my post, and have added your button to my blog.
