Valentine's Mug Rugs

Here's my first attempt at a mug rug:

Pink/red hearts machine appliqued (dryer sheet turn method) on muslin, bordered with a scrappy "made fabric."  Straight 1/2" quilting on the pieced section.  Approximately 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" finished.

And...they fit in a yellow mailer, so these will go as thank you gifts to a couple of bloggy friends.  Hope they like them since they are my first attempts at machine applique!  And...they use PINK SCRAPS, so...

Today I'm linking up to SoScrappy RSC14, Kim's Big Quilting Adventure Scrap Basket Sunday, and Sew Many Ways Sew Darn Crafty.
