Mug Rug for a Munchkin

My Mom has a very similar mug rug at her house made from scraps of a quilt that was made for a dear friend who died from pancreatic cancer.  My neice loves the mug rug, taking it and snuggling it every time she is at my parent's house.  I dug out some scraps and made one for her to take home.  
She hugged it and cuddled it the second I gave it to her.
I impressed myself with my machine binding skills which have become very very rusty due to my lack of sewing time.

40th Birthday Present

I finished this in the nick of time for my brother in law's 40th birthday.  This is the last one that I needed to make for my husband's side of the family.  

I have some scraps from this quilt as well as another WVU one that I'm going to make into a baby quilt for when our close friends from college have a baby.

Both of my sister in laws turn 40 in 2 years and both said they were hoping for quilts too.  People don't realize how much time and money goes into a quilt.  If I made quilts for them I would have to make them for my other brother in law and sister in law too.  At some point you have to draw the line and stop.
