Christmas Party

My guild - Southern Comforters of Bowie - had a party!  Every year we have a holiday dinner - potluck style.  The tables are decorated by a "hostess".  I've hosted a lot and did again this year.

The table favor was a Christmas mug, complete with hot cocoa and a peppermint candy cane AND a mug rug.

I made 10.  The 1/2-square triangles were leftovers from a long ago Christmas table topper (4 years ago?). Stitching them up actually went pretty quick but the idea of quilting 10 little bitty quilts, well, it just wasn't happening.

I stitched them into ONE top and quilted it (on my Handiquilter).

Then cut them apart and applied binding.

Pretty smart - huh?!!

Delightful party and wonderful table mates. I now own the mug with the Christmas wreath. Thank you for making the mug rug, too.
