Granny Square Block Mug Rug

Hey y'all!  I'm sharing a small finish today - - the Mother's Day gift I made for my mom this year!

This was a simple, quick and fun little project: I made a single block and turned it into a mug rug. For this one, I made a Granny Square block using this tutorial.

Then, just quilt and bind to make a perfect little mug rug. I did a simple crosshatch quilting pattern on this guy. (Also, can we talk about how much I love that text print from the Mama Said Sew fabric line? It makes me drool, that's how much I love it.)

I found these cute little labels a million years ago, and bound one into the binding as a final personal little touch. (This label had my dad convinced that I had bought the mug rug, not made it.)

I packaged the mug rug with a fancy teacup from Anthropology and a box of Charleston peach tea - yum!

Did you give or receive any handmades for Mother's Day?

Happy stitching,

Precious little gift and the label is "just right".

Are we ever going to see more Dear Jane blocks? I always looked forward to your progress on them and loved your color choices.

@brownj6610: Yes! I've gotten a little behind, but I should have some more done very soon! :-)
