Sew Awesome, who posted about a lovely moment with her mother and she inspired my attempt on the abstract blocks you will see a little of in the pictures! Another inspiration was A Girl In Paradise's post about her Folded-star mini quilt she posted for AmyLouwho's Mini Quilt challenge. I will admit I had thought about trying to enter my link in as well, but I misbehaved (ie. lifted things to cause a little pains to happen and husband to get a little panic'd) and missed the deadline. I was able to get 9 of the 12 Mug Rugs done, but I also have a picture of the other 3 which I plan to use as baby shower prizes (I know one is not supposed to do things for their own shower, but...). I really like how the scrappy binding turned out which I modified from Jaybird Quilt's Scrappy Binding Tutorial, I used scrap bag strips 3" inch wide and cut my binding to be 2" straight across instead of on the slant. I will have to try to follow her exact directions next time though cause I really like how her's turned out too!
