Meg's Super Simple Summer Mug Rug

The Bakersfield Modern Quilt Guild had its first swap!  We decided to swap mug rugs with the theme of "Summer".  I had all sort of plans to make something ah-mazing.  I just didn't know what, and for some reason inspiration just never struck.  So finally I just picked up some of my leftover Dream On scraps and sat down at the sewing machine.

I was inspired by Jeni's Scrappy Stack Mug Rug, which she has a tutorial for here.  Although, I used fewer strips and made them a little bigger.

I used this fun green floral print for the back. I love how the quilting turned out on this one!  Quilting is so much fun on little things like this.  As simple as it was, I do love how it turned out!  

The mug rug I received was made by Nancy.  Anyone who reads my blog is aware of my daughters' obsessions with rainbows, and kites have been on Juliana's mind as well of late.  So it was just perfect for them!

Here is the group with all their newly swapped mug rugs!

The weekend is here!  I love short four day weeks!  My weekend is going to be full of BBQs, dance rehearsals, sewing, and family!  Hope you have a good weekend planned as well!
