I began with these two blocks (remember the baby quilt I made for my youngest grandson, Alex, with similar blocks?). Got some batting scraps and backing fabric, pinned them together, chose the Aurifil threads...
... had fun quilting with them, and added binding by machine (quick project, right?). Here are the first four I finished that afternoon:
Aurifil monofilament while quilting the last two mug rugs.
And here they are together:
I could have just as well turned them into pot holders but I don't like them as I prefer mitts. I have mug rugs all throughout the house, though, and hope the recipients of these will enjoy them as much as I do!
Happy sewing day,
