Mug Rug Swap

The PMQG is having a members Mug Rug Swap. It is basically a mini quilt for your cuppa. Part of this challenge, was to try something new. So here's here's my new... I have been wanting to try Lesley Riley's TAP for some time now, so I purchased a package of it, and I must say this product is awesome! 

In Photoshop, I started with the photo above, I removed the phrase and the yellow background.
Then I found the chemical structure of Caffeine.

Married the two photos together and added the text...printed my new image on TAP, then applied to fabric. I used Insul-Bright batting, then quilted it.

Here's the product, a 4" x 6" quilted rug for my mug!
