Selvage Mug Rug

I made my first selvage mug rug and am so excited because I came up with using selvage for the binding! I hadn't seen this before but when writing this post I searched and found it on a blog from Creative Dabbling back in 2009. I love her On the Edge selvage zig zag quilt!
 This rug is a little birthday gift for Kristi who I am making the wedding quilt for so I thought what better to do then use selvages and fabric (which she hasn't seen yet!) from her quilt. I started the rug with a center square made up of some of the quilt fabric and then framed it in selvages finishing with the selvage binding. I love my new binding idea and it was a snap to do.

It's Mug Rug Madness time again over at Two More Seconds and this time it's Holiday themed. Check it out here.
