"Modern" Valentine Mug Rugs...

As I've told you before, we are getting a Modern Quilt Guild here in LV.  The first meeting is in a couple of weeks so I'm trying to incorporate some "modern" piecing into my quilts....These are little mug rugs that I'm going to give a couple of my fellow guards (teachers) on Tuesday.  I'm also giving them the mugs, the hot chocolate, and maybe a few Valentine colored Dove chocolates in the mugs.  A little "relaxation" gift set for a few teachers who go above and beyond and are feeling the stress at work (and don't have an outlet like quilting to calm them down!!)....

While I worked on binding those (using single-fold binding--a first for me), my friend Denise was piecing together a rag quilt for a friend's baby shower.  The theme was "monkeys"....

A very cute line of fabric, though I'm not sure of the name.  But it isn't overpoweringly "monkey/jungle"....too cute for a little boy, huh?  She will do the trimming and washing and have this ready for the shower in two weeks!!  Easy peasy....Happy Quilting!


  1. Love the mug rugs! What lucky teacher friends you have.

    The monkey fabric is so fun and definitely not too over the top!

    I am in the process of moving my blog over to, and am taking an online blog class, so right now it is all about work, but soon, I will be starting another project (or three) so that I can get back to some fun stuff!

  2. Beautiful your small modern stuff. I appreciate of your work.
