In September's upcoming meeting we are doing our ever-popular mug rug swap! If you aren't familiar, it's basically a very small quilt, just big enough for a mug of something hot and a little snack to go with. 10" by 8" or 6" is a popular size, but it can really be any small size or shape. I found a ton of great inspiration in the Mug Rug Madness Flickr group.

Simpler patchwork is just as effective. Flossieblossoms
Great selvedge tutorial by Fussycut.
Simple applique is always cute on such a small space. Time for Tea tutorial by Nova.
Just have fun, and make it modern and mini!
