Now, back to the coffee talk

Yesterday I showed what I've done so far on a coffee cozy/mug rug set for my cousin.  Here is the set for my grandmother (still in progress):

That's the backing on the left, front on the right.  I've had a fat quarter of the Hydrangea & Raspberry print in my stash just waiting for the right project to show it off.  I don't think I would have ever thought to put Hydrangeas and Raspberries together, but it works somehow :)  The whole fabric has a shimmer that you can't see in the photo.  I'm planning to bring the backing around to the front to bind the mug rug.

I need to get a cup of coffee so we can have a fitting session before the button gets stitched.  Looks like tomorrow I'll be making a trip to my favorite coffee stand, Aroma Joe's  ;)

I. love. this. button.

I hope you are enjoying your stitching as much as I'm enjoying this project :)
Happy Springtime!

Very cute! I love the back. It looks like a string quilt I'm working on!
