Valentines Day Mug Rug Surprise!

Mug Rug for Valentines Day

For the past several months I have been hosting a Mug Rug Swap on  This months theme is Valentines Day.  I asked the participants to please create something without knowing who there partner would be.  I wanted them to have complete license to create.  So this is my contribution and I hope my partner will like it.  It was lots of fun to make.  

I used some triangle scraps of fabric to make a piece block for half of the mug rug and then used white Kona cotton for the other half.  I used some iron on adhesive to place the little hearts to create the bleeding heart and then free motion quilted the entire piece.  

The quilting on the bleeding heart half was done with a special foot on my machine, see below.

Here's how I quilted the little lines.

If you would like to join in the fun with us on the next round, come for a visit at
We would love to have you join us!
