Surprised with a gift

A couple weeks ago the mailman brought me a little bundle.  It was from one of my sisters.  What could it be?  It was a little mug rug that she had made me.  I was totally surprised.  This sister is a rather newbie to quilting and when I saw her lovely work, I was doubly surprised.  Her skills from this project propell her out of the "newbie" category.  She chose great colors and even used the salvage edge.  It arrived at a good time for me as I needed a gift for a fellow quilter and this was a perfect gift
My sister shared the link with me where she found the pattern/directions and I will do the same for
anyone needing a little quilt to gift a friend.  The website should appear here.  You can make this
in color choices to fit your friend's taste.
I am not a coffee drinker so I told my sister that I would be using mine as a candle mat.  How cute!
I copied the Primitive Gatherings fabrics she used in this and started making a few.   Whether you use yours as a mug rug or a candle mat; make as a gift or keep it for yourself, this was a quick, easy and fun little project.

Very sweet! I can see this in many colors/fabrics/themes for gifts.
Thank you for sharing.
