Tea and Cake Mug Rug

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The steam quilting - it worked out well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try to co-ordinate fabrics too much - try different scraps together that you wouldn't normally put together. If you use charm squares then sew three or four 2.5" x 5" strips together for the scrappy binding.

What you will need

  • I used scraps and a couple of 5" charm squares

The Patchsmith answered:
Thank you - I love the colours and the fabrics work together. The charm pack that was given I would never have picked for myself yet the fabrics just go together so well. This mug rug sits on my office desk and just brightens the place. I love it too.
