|Hexagon Mug Rug|
|Hexagon Mug Rug Back|
These bits and pieces to make the mug rug are very old and they were all in a jumble in a storage bag. Which led me to another diversion..straightening my collection of bits and pieces into a usable (translation - findable) collection. I find myself taking more time straightening up my quilt room than doing the actual sewing! I'm looking for a solution to this conundrum.
Back to the Mug Rug...it is hand pieced and then the flowers were hand appliqued to the background. I hand quilted it.
These little mug rugs I've been doing have been a great way to hone my skills. I've never been able to put on a decent binding ...but now I think I can. Not the best, mind you, but it's coming along. I'm improving my hand quilting too. Again, not the best, but I'm coming along. And because the project is small, I'm not getting easily bored. ...which is why I have so many UFO's in the first place.
