A First

Hi All,

I can't believe it, but I finally made my first mug rug!

Our guild is having a mug rug exchange for the December meeting.  I went searching for more Schnibbles leftovers and found a bag with these fabrics. 

The fabric is Luna Notte
I've had the Easy Dresden ruler for a while now and have wanted to play with it, so this seemed the perfect opportunity to make something.  I cut the "blades" from 3.5" strips.  I think the whole rug is around 8" square.
I first used a coordinating fabric in black for the center, thinking to also use it for the binding.  It was awful!  Then I found this charm square with the flowers near the center, so that I was able to cut the circle with the flowers centered.  I really like how it came out.
Everyone who participates in the exchange will get a number.  They will get to go to the displays of mug rugs in order and choose their favorite.  I can't wait to see all of them and I'll really try to remember to take my camera.
Have a great day!
