Christmas Mug Rugs

Whilst working on (read as pinning, unpinning and repinning) the Log Cabin Quilt I also worked on some mug rugs. I’m still relatively new at quilting and I thought the smaller projects would let me quickly practice some techniques plus I get that nearly instant gratification of finishing some items!

I went from one of these lovely charm packs:

To a lovely and festive mug rug!

This is the first one I made and there was definitely room for improvement. The second one I did (no pictures at this point) went much easier.

Details:

Fabric: Vintage Holiday by Bonnie and Camille for Moda (snowball is some Kona solids in white. Backing and binding are from Patrick Lose’s holiday line from last year)

Pattern: Snowflake Mug Rug tutorial from Quilt Addicts Annonymous on YouTube

What’s your favorite way to practice techniques?
