I am really attracted to all the fun mug rugs I see in blogland. Such creative little works of art. This one that I have made did not start out as a mug rug. It started out after looking at BumbleBeans's tutorial on how to "make fabric" . I loved the idea of sewing small odd shaped scraps together to make larger pieces and then using the larger pieces to cut shapes for blocks. I had lots of tiny red pieces leftover from making the Quiltville mystery quilt so I just started sewing them together. Then I joined Rainbow Scrap Challenge. In this challenge, a colour is assigned each month (January is red) and you make something scrappy in that colour. Whatever you want. So my "made fabric" turned into a mug rug for this challenge.
