Just A Little Finish for a Friend

Just a little mug rug. My SIL J asked me to make it for her friend who's suffering some serious health issues. 
Mug rug for SIL's Alaska mission friend
J and her husband go on a mission trip to a remote village in Alaska every summer, and this friend is one of their fellow Alaska missionaries. They take "vacation bible school" to a coastal village above the Arctic Circle. The friend won't be able to go any more.  J asked me to make a "tea coaster thing" for her friend like a mug rug I had made for her several years ago.

The moose tracks fabric is all I had left with any kind of Alaska theme. I used it for the back of the mug rug, too. It's left over from a quilt I made for J and her family in 2011. Since that was before I started blogging and I've never shown it on the blog, here's a picture of it.  I used the moose tracks print for the binding as well as some of the patches.

Anyway, I hope the little mug rug brings a smile to J's friend.

Linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Friday Finish at Crazy Mom Quilts.
