Continuing on from yesterday…..
5″ foundation block is done
Cut a piece of wadding at about 6″
and a piece of backing at 6″
Layer up just like a quilt; backing right side down, then wadding, then the top
Secure with some safety pins…
This is a mug rug, so I’m not going overboard with quilting; line up a ruler on the diagonal and I used a Hera Marker to “rule” a line
Can you see the indentation made by the Hera Market (no pen/pencil to remove!)
Sew along this indentation
Repeat on the other diagonal.
Cut binding at 2″
Bind as you would a quilt
and trim to just outside the raw edges.
Turn binding to the back and hand stitch down.
So there we have it….
three cute mug rugs, for three lovely ladies, from three grateful people!
Have you made a mug rug?
