The Design-Your-Own Mug Rug Blog Hop

EPP MugRug Blog Hop

It's time for a new EPP blog hop, and this time, we're designing our own!

The Design-Your-Own Mug Rug Blog HopGenerally speaking, I'm not a big follower of patterns and instructions - I like to come up with my own designs. This is one of the reasons I love English paper piecing so much. There are so many analog and digital ways you can create own patterns and templates. In fact, there's a whole chapter on this subject in All Points Patchwork, and so I thought it would also be a fun blog-hop challenge.

So, this week five talented bloggers will each design an original EPP mug rug. I love the venerable mug rug as an EPP project - it's just substantial enough in size to really play with fitting shapes together, and yet small enough that you can enjoy your finished creation in the space of a weekend.

Here's our lineup of participants:
