Holiday Tree Mug Rug

Tired of trees yet?

I'm waiting for an Insul-Bright order to arrive so I can make a couple of pot holders but, in the mean time, I figured a new mug rug for my desk would come in handy.
Holiday Mug Rug
I used scraps from the Tree Lot quilt. The block is my favorite block from the pattern.

The border is Small Le Creme Dots from Riley Blake in Red. I used a tone on tone white fabric from P&B Textiles for the background. A little more interesting than plain white, I think.

I bound it using Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts' technique for binding tiny things. It worked like a charm!

(The mug is from Pottery Barn. I've had the set for close to 15 years, but I just saw them in the store this weekend!)


  1. That is just darling! Love the quilting, too!

  2. What a cute little tree pattern. It looks like the wind is blowing.

  3. So cute! Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern too. :)
