It seems to me a mug rug is a way to practice quilted pictures on a small scale. I've always been fascinated by house quilts and want to make a larger one, but this is good practice.
I started by making a drawing.
I fused all my cut piece and here they are one the cloud background.
I then added the batting and backing and zig zagged everything into place.
I'm thinking next time I wouldn't do it that way. I don't like how the back looks.
I will do some quilting on it and then bind it. Maybe that will get done today.
