Doily Mug Rug Tutorial

This little mug rug is the only thing I finished quilting today……..I had to have a “finish”. Being gone last weekend and then helping Builder Bob most of the week was making me have quilt withdrawal. I did a little housecleaning, spent some time cleaning up my quilt room and then did some piecing. I have a couple things that are ready to be quilted. I also thought about my wonky stars from yesterday and decided I want them straight so I started ripping out seams. Now back to the mug rug.

I forgot to take photos of my Sizzix Big Shot and this cute die called Decorative Doily – probably because I already had this shape cut out. This is the same die I used for my Spider Mug Rug.

Instead of appliqueing around it I decided to just stitch some straight rows to hold the design in place. It already had Heat & Bond Lite on it so I just fused it to my mug rug fabric.

I marked a couple lines with one of my new Frixion pens and then used my foot to do the rest of the lines.  I got my lines going crooked and had to mark a new line, thank goodness this is for me. I then did lines in the other direction, trimmed it up and added a 2.5 inch binding.

 Can you tell I like lots of quilting? I will be curious to see how this holds up with washing.

The weather here has been beautiful so I spent some time outside. This is a photo I took last week on our road trip. Wish I was taking a walk there.
