I'm so excited to start this mug rug. I'm making it for my bookworm aunt for her birthday next month. I'm a beginner quilter, and extra new to appliqu. Can you let me know what stitch you suggest for the appliqu? I prefer machine, but am willing to try hand since they are so small.
Thanks!
Brandi

Hi Brandi,
I definitely prefer the machine blanket stitch for this kind of applique. If you are new to this, check out this tutorial on my blog. http://klee2strings.blogspot.com/p/one-of-my-very-close-friends-happens-to.html
I think it explains how to go about stitching quite clearly. I'd also recommend practicing on some scraps before you start stitching on the mug rug itself. If the machine stitching is uncomfortable, you could use a very small hand blanket stitch. It won't hold quite as firmly, but it should be fine. Good luck with this. Please let me know how it works for you.

Made this for my brother in law who does book reviews. Made the mug from fabric with his favorite team's logo on it. Turned out so great. Thanks for the easy to follow directions!

Hi 2 strings. I'm not sure why I'm missing seeing all your great work??? Have things changed so much in Crafsty set up??? I am so pleased to see your beautiful work. The mug and book duo makes an impressive gift.
