Finished The Rug Mugs

 I finished the bindings on the last three mug rugs today. These are all orphan blocks from a Dear Jane Swap. I recently finished a quilt top using many of the blocks from the swap and these did not make it into the top. I like them and figured they would be perfect as little mug rugs. I had fun finding inspirational quotes to put on each one to make it a rectangle instead of a square. They finish at 9X12 inches. I think the one in the middle is my favorite.
 Quote reads: Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Sieze common occasions and make them great.
 Quote reads: Its not the years in your life that count. Its the life in your years.
Quote reads: You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
