"Raindrops Keep Falling"

 
Can
 
anyone
 
stop
 
the
 
rain
 
 drops
 
from
 
falling
 
?
 
Or make just one mug rug?
 
Not me!
 
Sew I made another ...
 
I cut individual raindrops
and petals and little green leaves

Marti Mitchell Stripper Template

Edit:  I had an email question about the smaller ruler I used in these shaped mug rugs.  It is from the Stripper Templates @ Marti Mitchell
There are two other shapes in this packet and they are great for cutting from 2.5 inch strips and scraps and charms.
I have had these rulers for some time so I made use of them. 
You could cut the same size shapes from the Hex'n'More ruler.
 
Sew Spring!

'n' More
 

Raindrop
 
 
This one shimmers!
The hex petals are Fairy Frost.

Shaped.
 

Quilted.
I practiced my FMQ on this one.
Very fun and relaxing,
