I love all things retro- and VW's just rock! I know someone who recently told me that they had a blue bug when they were a teenager and wished they still had it :) So I knew the minute I heard it what I just had to do ;)!!! A mug rug it is! It measures 12" by 7". I think it's just too cute! And I sure do hope she likes it too! It'll be headed to her in the morning :) Such a fun surprise!
I love the colors- it made me smile the whole time!! And I found a good clip art image that I used as a guide for the appliqué.
The quilting around the bug was my favorite part- flowers in the "sky", headlight in front, speed lines in back, and a wavy road. So perfect!
I quilted tiny loops everywhere else and just had fun with it :) I think this is one of my favorite projects for sure! I think I'm not the only one with 60's Love ;)
