Modern Provence mug rug

I recently made this mug rug for a swap at the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild. My partner Lyn mentioned that she liked the colors of Provence: deep, saturated blues and sunny, buttery yellows. How beautiful! Those colors are always so happy to me. I took the Provence theme and put in touches of the modern aesthetic, with the wonky star and some bold patterned fabrics. The border is a lovely slubbed chambray.

The very best part is that Lyn loved it! She sent me this photo of her tea wares on it and it is perfect. It helped that she was so descriptive about what she wanted, and it warms my heart to see she enjoys it. Her sugar bowl is gorgeous, too.
