take a sip of inspirationThis week’s mug rug reminds me so much of the final block from the I Wish You a Merry Quilt-A-Long that I just had to feature it today!

Mug Rug Bright Lights
This mug rug was unlabeled by the maker.

I like how the ribbon is left unstitched and truly resembles the bit of a tangle that most light strings have going on. The quilting is simple: just an outline around the bulbs, giving them a little added dimension. The quilter added a shadow on each bulb to complete the effect. Craftsy has a blog post about using crayons (yes, just regular crayons) for shading on fabric.
