Yay!! I finished my mug rug and now I'm posting my entry up to the Mini Quilt Challenge.
As you may have read in my previous post, this is my first attempt at a Mug Rug and my first time ever for Free Motion Quilting. I decided to practice and practice to really make this Mug Rug something special.
One think I know for sure is I love when the idea in my mind translates perfectly to the design in my finished piece. I'm including a few photos of progress along the way.
I had so much fun making this mini quilt and now I know I definitely need to try my hand at another mug rug. This has been such a fun way to experiment and try my hand at something totally new.
I hope you enjoy my piece......
|The beginning stages, paper-pieced branch|
with hand appliqued blossoms
|Sewing on the binding....I decided to go with the brighter|
pink print I used for the larger blossoms. I just loved the contrast!
|My finished piece....ready for a cup of coffee and a snack!|
|A closeup on the quilting. I added this little cherry to my|
FMQ design. I just love how this added to the overall
look of the finished piece!
