Kiss Me Quick, Valentine!!!

Hello, Friends!
If you're looking for a quick gift idea
from the heart, for someone who's sweet,

This pattern is very versatile, which is great news.
This is an example of a clean and simple design,
using one single fabric for the front.

 I had all of the supplies on hand...
this mug rug started out as two 10" layer cake squares
from Sweetwater's "First Crush" line for Moda.

I used a charming label from Sweetwater,
to put into words exactly what I was thinking.
This mug rug will be a birthday present 
for my wonderful mom!

{Shhh...her birthday is right after Valentine's Day!}

It was so easy to add the label to the heart shape,
with some fusible webbing and a neat straight stitch.

I used some squiggly free motion quilting,
to add interest.
I love the contrasting red ric rac edging.

I came up with an even quicker version,
using two more 10" squares of First Crush prints.

See how easy???
I didn't even need to add quilting,
since the fusible fleece gives it a beautiful finish.

I had fun using some labels I've been hoarding
for way to long!

It's reversible, too!

I normally piece together a patchwork for the front. 
That's super fun, when there's time available.

I got this "kiss me quick" idea,
because the backs of the mug rugs
are just as pretty as the fronts.

I hope you'll be inspired to try some quick versions

And remember...
gifts from the heart are welcomed every day,
even beyond Valentine's Day.
