Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Mug Rug Link to website or photo sew-fantastic.blogspot.com/2011/03/mug-rug-tutorial-scrappy-colorblock.html What are you most proud of? Learning how to make the binding and mitered corners. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'm not quite sure why the material puckered here and there... perhaps I need to pin more? Also, I should have done a better job of squaring the piece before adding the quilting because the lines are kind of crooked. I see how important that is now... I guess I could make it more wonky so it doesn't matter!

Q&A with Marie Withrow

VicMansfield asked:
Great job - love the pattern and the colours. Maybe try using Basting Spray and then pin. I find that holds it all really still while quilting and I wouldn't make a quilt, even a small one, without it! :)
Marie Withrow answered:
Thanks for the tip.... I've been meaning to try that out and will for sure!
