This week for my mug rug quilting practice I followed this tutorial for a Scrappy Colour block Mug Rug from Sew Fantastic.
I'm quite pleased with the result - but I have to say it was a lot of work cutting out all the small pieces and putting them together. I great way to use up some very small scraps though!
For the backing I used part of an old dress of my daughter's! A nice sparkly one!
For the binding - I followed a great detailed and clear tutorial from Contented.
I was really happy with how it was going and how neat it looked until I chose to ignore the part at the end that said to hand stitch the last side of the binding. Being lazy, I machine stitched it, and missed a few bits I had to restitch!
Still - I think I'm getting better at those mitred corners!
And all these mug rugs are providing a good excuse for the odd cuppa with tasty snacks!!
