Silly Mama Quilts Mug Rug Review/Giveaway

Last year I had the privilege to review a beautiful table runner from Brooke at Silly Mama Quilts.  Well, once again she offered for me to review a very cute little creation- a mug rug!  I could spend all afternoon browsing Brooke's Etsy shop and also looking through her blog.  She is highly creative and has a eye for color and design.  Her ideas are endless and she's one busy little mama with 4 kids ranging from early elementary to college graduate.   Brooke has been quilting since her oldest was 2 years old.  She is a veteran, but with fresh ideas!  She loves experimenting with colors and fabric.  She loves handmade projects and puts her whole heart and soul into what she does and it shows!



Take a look at this mug rug- Birds of a Feather.  I am in love with the vibrant colors: bright green, royal blue, teal and flaming red/orange.  Brooke changes up a traditional mug rug by making one side of the rectangle one large square of fabric with huge prints and the other half is six little squares of coordinating colors.  And the border accents with matching subtle shades.  The back side blends exactly with the border and completes the mug rug in perfect harmony.  This mug rug measures 6x10.5 and warm and natural batting is used.

This would make an ideal gift for someone who loves their morning coffee. Pair this mug rug with a cute mug and a gift card to Starbucks!  Brooke has several different designs to choose from.  There is no end to creativity on her part or yours!  These are a beautiful alternative to coasters.  They range in price from $7-$8.50.
