I finally arrived at my idea just in the nick of TIME! I would STITCH up a couple of economy blocks (that's the SAVE part :) made up of NINE scrappy pieces in the colors of my favorite baseball team, the Colorado Rockies! (lots of NINE involved in playing baseball - nine positions on the field, nine innings...)
The Rockies colors are black, white, purple, and silver, so what's not to like about sewing up a couple of mug rugs made of those colors in polka dots and swirls?!
A view of the back - more purple!
And with some morning coffee!
My mug rugs measure about 7 inches square and will get lots of use here in Loveland, Colorado, where we are big Colorado Rockies fans!
