For my finish today, I whipped up 30 mug rugs! I really cut 42, but I only bound 30!! And it took me a little bit to bind them…

So, after a Hobbit marathon, several other movies and tv shows (and a lot of checking FB and IG in between each mug rug!!!), I got these cutie suckers all done!!

I'll post a picture of the finished luncheon table with all of the mug rugs when someone texts me with it (hint hint)!! LOL!!

Here's what I learned doing these:

  • I LOVED the process of creating a bunch of mug rugs at once!
  • I LOVED practicing my FMQ (free motion quilting). 
  • I WISHED I had gone to my darling friend, Becca's mini workshop on machine binding which is coming up at our August HMQG meeting (for locals, it's August 16th from 1-4pm!!)!!! Those little mug rugs took a bit too long to bind by hand…BUT remember, I love to bind!! ♥
  • I WISHED I had more hours in the day to make more and more mug rugs!!

    I find it harder to do the binding on small item like this, because there’s just not the room to have lots of overhang to join the ends.
