Snack Time

I was inspired by Wanda of Exuberant Color to make a journal quilt. I don't know if I am going to join a group doing this. It seems like a lot of work to do each week of the year. Then I have to wonder what I will do with all those little quilts. So I decided to make a mug rug out of my first journal. It seemed fitting to use the wonky log cabin blocks with the elephant block for week 1 and 2 of this year. It measures 8inches by 15inches. I think that is a little large for a mug rug, but it's only my first one and I am still experimenting.






Here is the fabric I used for the back.







So it's snack time. Coffee for me and peanuts for this Ellie.

That is so cute! I love the elephant block. It is a mini placemat if not a mug rug.

As far as joining the group goes, you set your own goals and rules, you are not obligated to do one every week.

It is a darling mug rug. What a rage they have become, hey. I'm thinking they have become popular so fast because of blogging.

I love it and when you said it was a little large for a mug rug I thought it would be perfect for afternoon tea/coffee. You have room for your cup and a little plate for a snack.

Very cute mug rug, and the peanut snack for the elephant block was a nice touch.
